Dear Woking Borough Council,

Could you please provide me with a list of all HMO's in the
borough including the name and registered address of the
licence holder, and the number of rooms in each of the HMO's.

I noted that this request was made by someone else two years ago but I believe this record is no longer up to date.

Many thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Mari-Kaisa Kankkunen

I confirm that the Council holds information which meets the description contained in your request. The information requested will not be sent to you as I consider that it is exempt information under Section 40(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The Section states:-
40(1) Any information to which a request for information relates is exempt information if it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is the data subject.

This absolute exemption applies because We are obliged under section 232 of the Housing Act 2004 to maintain a register of all licences granted under part 2 (HMO) and Part 3 (selective licensing) and this can be found at https://woking.gov.uk/housing/private-ho...

Section 11 of The Licensing and Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation and Other Houses (Miscellaneous Provisions) (England) Regulations 2006 sets out the prescribed particulars for each entry in a register. These include the following and not limited to:-
(a) name and address of the licence holder
(b) name and address of the person managing the house

This does NOT include the name and address of the registered owners.

.

The Data Protection Act 1998 gives you a right of access to your personal data. Details of how to request a copy of you personal information can be found at:
https://www.woking.gov.uk/council/about/...

I hope that you are satisfied with the way in which your request for information has been dealt with. If not, the Council has decided that any complaint regarding requests for information that cannot be dealt with satisfactorily on an informal basis should be dealt with in accordance with its established complaints procedure.
