Housing in Multiple Occupation (HMO)

What are the Duties of Tenants?

It is the responsibility of all occupants to ensure the landlord can effectively carry out his duties. All residents must: 

  • Allow the Landlord access, at reasonable times, to any occupied room.
  • Comply with arrangements made by the Landlord in respect of fire precautions or litter storage/disposal.
  • Take reasonable care to avoid damaging items which the Landlord is obliged to keep in good repair. 
  • Do not take part in anti-social behavior that affects other occupants/neighbours.
