Early morning HMO raids by Luton Council

Luton Council's Rogue Landlord team carried out a series of early morning raids on suspected unlicensed Houses in Multiple Occupation

The early morning raids on five HMO properties on Biscot Road, Luton were carried out on Thursday 2nd June by council officers assisted by the police.

Officers reported the unlicensed Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) to be in unsatisfactory condition, lacking adequate fire safety measures and to include a number of unauthorised and potentially unsafe constructions.

Robin Porter, corporate director, underlined the Luton Council's policy on HMO's: 

"Every landlord that houses different families sharing the same facilities under one roof must register for an HMO licence. We will not hesitate to prosecute landlords who show a disregard for the law and their responsibilities towards occupants”.
