As part of the reforms to houses in multiple occupation (HMO) licensing, the Government is addressing concerns about inadequate refuse facilities in HMOs. The proposed reforms include a new mandatory condition to be included in HMO licences requiring that licence holders comply with any scheme issued by the local housing authority for the storage and disposal of household waste.
