Southampton vs The HMO

Posted Posted in Opinion, Views

In recent weeks we have been hearing rumour coming from our ‘friends’ at Southampton City Council.

The story followed that the City Council was actively looking to replace all HMO’s within the City with Hall of Residence Places thus squeezing out the HMO market.

If Southampton was trying to say it was not biased things were not looking good.

Well the confusion did not end in 2014. The adopted standards which, if i’m honest, are either adopted..or guidance…or ignored by council’s are still vague and poorly implemented. Useful terms such as ‘studio’ have been ignored and any property type that does not conform to the Governments idea of middle England suburbia has no standard at all.
