Consultation on licensing privately rented properties in Ealing

This consultation will close on 2 August 2021.

The consultation

Ealing Council is seeking your views on new property licensing proposals which will continue to improve the standards of privately rented property in the borough. 

We are proposing to introduce a new additional licensing scheme which will apply to houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) across the whole borough as well as a new selective licensing scheme which will apply to all privately rented properties in 15 wards of the borough.

Your views

We want to hear the views of all residents, tenants, landlords, managing or letting agents, organisations and businesses on our proposals. Please make sure to read the following documents:

  1. Private Property Licensing Schemes – consultation document
  2. Ward Profiles

  6. Proposed Schedule of Licence Fees
  7. FAQ’s

before completing a short survey to have your say.

Some questions are compulsory and these are used to ensure that only relevant further questions are shown to you based on your responses. Paper copies of the survey are also available on request. 

This consultation will close on 2 August 2021.
