Prohibition Orders and Improvement Notices: Same Property, Different Hazards

21st November 2018 RIAMS

Steve Battersby’s latest digest in the Housing Professionals community on RIAMS Communities focuses on how Prohibition Orders and Improvement Notices can be used on the same property to address different hazards.

In this case, the applicant appealed against a Prohibition Order and an Improvement Notice issued on her HMO property. The property was in a selective licensing area and the applicant had declared the property as an HMO with four residents.

Upon inspecting the property, it appeared that at least 8 individuals resided there. The Prohibition Order was made to reduce the number of residents to 5 and the Improvement Notice was issued to address the hazards identified.

The tribunal was required to assess whether, at the date of inspection, “in light of the changed occupation” and “the works undertaken”, “there were grounds to quash or vary either of the Notices or if either should be confirmed”.
