Bin lorry drivers are on strike over a number of days. We apologise but this is out of our control. We are continuing to try and find a resolution that will get drivers back on the streets.Read the latest update
Within Coventry, all privately rented properties occupied as a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) require a licence. Under section 70 of the Housing Act 2004, a licence can be revoked either on agreement or on the Council’s own initiative.
The licence can be revoked for the following reasons:
In this scenario, the Council will serve you a Notice of Intend to Revoke the licence, providing reasons of the intent. You will have an opportunity to make any representations, which we will consider.
HMO licences are not transferable, therefore if an HMO has been sold, a licence holder has changed or if it is no longer classed as an HMO, the licence must be revoked.
A revocation made with the agreement of the licence holder takes effect at the time when it is made. The Council can revoke or refuse to revoke the licence and the licence holder will be informed about Council’s decision in writing.
