All Homes of Multiple Occupancy (HMO) in the borough and privately rented accommodation in the wards of Harlesden, Willesden Green and Wembley Central must have a licence.

Properties are classed as being a HMO if it is rented out to three or more people with one of them not being related to the others.

The scheme aims to tackle poorly-managed privately rented properties which attracts anti-social behaviour (ASB), nuisance neighbours and fly-tipping.

Since it came into force in January last year there have been a catalogue of successful prosecutions where landlords who have failed to licence their property have been fined.

This includes Rehan Sheikh of Manor Drive, Wembley, who was given a jail sentence. He is currently on bail while he appeals his conviction.
