Name
Housing enforcement policy
Summary

Herefordshire Council carry out a wide range of legal duties under housing related legislation. These duties are applied by carrying out programmed inspections of premises, responding to complaints and offering advice.

This policy outlines the approach we take when considering enforcement action. It is intended to ensure that we deal with everyone in a consistent way. It applies to all private rented properties including Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs). It also applies to privately owned and occupied dwellings.

This policy complies with the Enforcement Concordat to which Herefordshire Council is a signatory and should be read in conjunction with the council's general enforcement and prosecution policy.
