Houses in Multiple Occupation - Policy for assessing fit and proper persons
What happens if the licence holder fails the fit and proper test during the duration of the licence
Should the council become aware that a licence holder or manager of an HMO commits an offence or breach which would result in the failure of the fit and proper test during the duration of the licence, the council may revoke the licence.
At all times the council will consider all evidence available and make decisions in accordance with this policy. Should the licence holder be subject to a banning order under section 16 of the Housing and Planning Act 2016 during the duration of an existing licence, the licence holder will fail the fit and proper test and the council must revoke the licence.
