Consultation on property licensing - Private Rented Housing

Newham Council wants to ensure that private rented properties in Newham offer residents a choice of good quality, safe and well managed accommodation.

After two previous rented property licensing schemes, the Council is now considering the possibility of a third scheme from 2023 onwards.

Before making a decision, Newham Council wants to hear your views about the proposal and any alternatives, whether you are a private tenant, landlord, a Newham resident or business, or someone in the surrounding areas.
