Our standards required for houses in multiple occupation

Download a copy of our Standards for Houses in Multiple Occupation.

We have adopted a set of standards that act as the minimum standards required for all Houses in Multiple Occupation within the Borough of Pendle.

The document should act as a general guide for persons who own, manage or control houses in multiple occupation (HMOs). 

It takes account of the statutory requirements of the Housing Act 2004, the Regulations made under this Act and associated government guidance.

The standards are applicable to all Houses in Multiple Occupation regardless of whether a mandatory licence is required and should be read in conjunction with the specific guides for the different categories of HMOs.
