I recently discovered that my council (Islington) now require my family home (previously classified as an unlicensed HMO as it has 4 young professionals renting it under one tenancy agreement) to be licensed.
After a huge payment to apply for a licence online, and then a second huge payment is taken, I receive an email and letter confirming that they propose to license my house as an HMO, but I need to meet the following Additional Licence conditions:
i. Provide a satisfactory fire detection and alarm system inspection and servicing report that details the required information in FSG7 certificate or equivalent with reference to
ii. Provide a current emergency lighting certificate for the property which has been obtained within the last twelve months.
Since I really don’t want to fit fire alarm system (I have 10 year connected RF smoke/heat alarms as it is) nor an emergency lighting in my house that I may move back into in the future, can anyone advise if the council within their rights to demand that I meet those requirements?
