I did wonder what a council’s view is with (say) universities who actively broker and refer students to local Landlord’s and then the LL then turns out to be an unlicensed HMO, this surely puts the Uni on the hook?
So in the spirit of finding out I did some additional HMO research and this blew my mind – if you have an family house in one of the 5 designated wards let to students in the city of Brighton you need to get additional HMO license….. but if you sublet / lease this property out to Sussex University then you as the property owner do not need a licence.
What is jaw dropping is the fact Sussex University, who now let the property to students in these 5 wards, don’t actually hold a license and don’t need one according to BHCC because they are nice/decent and proper people!
What exempts Sussex Uni from the housing act is unclear, not sure what standards or things they’ve shown the Council to get this privilege but there you go.
