Closed 9 Sep 2022

Opened 15 Jul 2022


Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) are properties rented out by more than two people who are not from the same household (i.e., family) but share basic facilities like a kitchen or bathroom. It does not include self-contained flats where none of the facilities are shared, but includes houses containing bedsits, hostels and shared houses.

The Council wants feedback from residents, landlords and others to help understand the views and experiences of people regarding HMOs in North Northamptonshire.

We will share the results of this survey and use your feedback to help make recommendations for policy and service changes to improve the Council’s corporate approach to HMOs.

Please note that this online survey will not allow you to save your responses and return to them, so we advise that you view the survey in the first instance and prepare your responses ahead of entering them into the online form. This will avoid you losing any partial responses that have not been submitted on completion.
