New national restrictions are in place. Make sure you know what to do to Protect Portsmouth.
The following list sets out the Council’s combined database of HMO properties, setting out the Council’s understanding of the planning status of properties, and whether or not the property benefits from a license which would be issued by the Private Sector Housing Team.
The Planning Service has an Article 4 direction that covers the entire City however, the regulations for licensing vary and are as follows:
Portsmouth City Council is joined up, however in some cases the legislation we have to work with is not. Dealing with the Article 4 directive and licensing of HMO’s, then each department has a specific responsibility to ensure compliance with its own legal responsibilities and this can mean a HMO could be issued a licence via the Private Sector Housing Team, when it does not have planning permission to be used as a HMO and vice versa. But we do share information and ensure that landlords are full aware of their legal responsibilities.
Note: We cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information in respect of the lawful use of these properties as we have relied, in some instances, upon information provided to us by property owners.
