Licensing Private Rented Homes in Luton

Closed 22 Sep 2021

Opened 12 Jul 2021

Overview

The Council are consulting on proposals to improve housing conditions in the private rented housing sector in Luton.  The Council want to ensure that private rented properties in Luton offer tenants a choice of safe, quality and well-managed properties.  We are proposing introducing licensing of all houses in multiple occupation across the Town and all privately rented properties within South Ward.

 

 

Why your views matter

Before making a decision, the Council want to hear your views about the proposals and any alternatives that they could consider.  We would specifically like to hear from private tenants, landlords, letting and managing agents, residents and businesses and organisations operating in Luton and surrounding areas. 

What happens next

Luton Council will review all of the feedback and wider evidence in order to decide whether or not to introduce an additional licensing, selective licensing or both schemes.  We will let people know on the Council's website, with at least three months notice.
