Friday October 7th, Sheffield Town Hall

About Us

The National HMO Network aims to promote a clear understanding of the wide range of matters associated with parts 1, 2 & 3 of the Housing Act 2004 and to share information, skills and experience amongst interested parties.

These are houses occupied by more than one household & are strictly defined in legislation. We often know them as bedsits, flat-lets and shared houses.

The Network brings together people from many disciplines - local authorities, landlords’ groups, tenants' groups, academic institutions & accommodation providers, government in England & Wales, private consultants, charitable & professional bodies and fire services.

We hold conferences each year for Network members at venues around the UK to discuss the application and introduction of legislation and guidance, policy, areas of good practice, working partnerships, training & issues for development.

Elected Steering GroupThe HMO Network has an elected Steering Group who attend meetings with government officials & politicians, respond on behalf of the Network to government consultations & work with partners such as the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health & landlords' groups to consider good practice issues for training & sharing skills & expertise.

Take a look through our website for information about the Network and HMOs generally. You’ll find links to legislation, organisations and news stories as well as our conferences and presentations. If you have an interesting story to tell or suggestions for the website or conferences please get in touch.
