Survey (Please Complete) - Extending Mandatory Licensing Of Houses In Multiple Occupation (Hmos) And Related Reforms

Recommended Posts

OK - I have mixed feelings here which will no doubt attract comments and controversy.

Landlords are told in no short-terms that they can no longer pack people in like sardines - this puts further pressure on the UK's accommodation supply. Illegal migrants slumming it in HMOs are much more likely to remain in the UK if they have better housing. Assuming their job prospects remain the same, is the taxpayer going to be picking up the tab for this better housing? How will those abroad eyeing up the UK feel if they learn that new legislation is improving the accommodation on offer to migrants making it to this country?

I am against slums, BTL, taxpayers money propping up landlord returns etc. Overcrowded HMOs for people who are born here is one issue. This petition makes reference to housing for illegal immigrants though. I for one do not think we should be taking steps to make the UK an even greater attraction for migrants. I don't pretend to know what the solution to this problem is, but this doesn't look like the answer to me.
