The request was successful.

Dear Council,

In excel format can you please supply me with a list of all HMO's in the borough (licenced or otherwise) including the registered address of the licence holder and their name and the number of rooms in each of the HMO's

If you also have a list of properties not requiring a licence but still used as an HMO please also include the owners registered address.

Finally, if you work with any private landlords who have multiple property portfolios please supply their contact address so that I may enquire to purchase their portfolio with intention to let to LHA tenants if suitable.

Dear Ms MacNab

Thank you for your enquiry Under the Freedom of Information Act, dated 19th September 2017.

The information on licensed HMOs known to the borough is provided on the attached file.

We do not keep a dataset of non-licensed HMOs.

We do not have a list of private portfolio landlords.

The Council operates a presumption of openness in its access to information. It provides much information outside the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act and it will continue to do on a “business as usual” basis. Persons do not need to engage the statutory provisions to access all reasonable information about the Council and its services.

If, for whatever reason, you are unhappy with our response, you have the right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your original letter and should be addressed to Head of Legal Services, Elmbridge Borough Council, Civic Centre, High Street, Esher, Surrey KT10 9SD.

Should you then remain dissatisfied at the outcome of that process, you are entitled to appeal against the decision by contacting:
The Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
Telephone: 08456 30 60 60 or 01625 54 57 45

There is no charge for making an appeal.

Kind regards

Steve Nottage
Interim Private Sector Housing Manager
