Dear Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council,

I sent a previous request a long while back and for which I should have received a response by 19/4/22. I am yet to get a response.

I would be very grateful if under the FOI Act you could send me an excel copy of your HMO register including the following fields:

1. the address of the licensed HMO or house;
2. the number of rooms in the licensed HMO providing sleeping accommodation;
3. the maximum number of persons or households permitted to occupy the licensed HMO
under the conditions of the licence;
4. the name of the licence holder;
a) split across columns Title, First Name, Last Name
5. the address of the licence holder;
a) split across columns Company name, Address 1, Address 2, Address 3, Address 4,
City, Postcode
6. the name and address of the person managing the licensed HMO or house.

This request is made in line with the Information Commissioner’s Office protocols and as provided for in The Housing Act 2004, section 232 which requires every local authority to maintain a public register of premises licensed as an HMO.

And, The Licensing and Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation and Other Houses
(Miscellaneous Provisions) (England) Regulations 2006, section 11 stipulates the data the Council need to hold in the public register they maintain.

Thank you for your time in fulfilling this request.

Yours faithfully,

Nana Oppon

Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council
