HMO Licence Training Course - Sheffield
Michelle Slater, Service Manager for Private Housing Standards in Sheffield City Council: "I'm delighted that we have been able to renew our training partnership with the Residential Landlords Association. The satisfaction ratings from participants are consistently very high and our staff have also completed the same training package. This training provides excellent quality training at a very reasonable cost."
Sheffield City Council believes in the continued professional development of landlords. This ensures that houses of multiple occupation (HMO) in the city are safe and secure environments and are managed to a high standard. Therefore, it is part of the HMO licence conditions that landlords must complete the required training.
This course is delivered by an experienced landlord and letting agent and allows networking between landlords, managers and agents as part of the training. Upon completion of the end of course assessment, delegates are also invited to become members of the RLA Accreditation Scheme.
Working in partnership with the RLA, Sheffield City Council has developed a comprehensive training course to teach landlords all they need to know about operating HMO in the city.
- The definition of an HMO, selective licensing, additional licensing and article 4 requirements
- How to obtain a licence including the fit and proper person test and satisfactory management functions
- Health and safety requirements for HMO including Management requirements, HHSRS, repair requirements, fire safety, and enforcements
- Management of rental property from using agents, advertising and issuing tenancy agreements to dealing with problems and ending tenancies
This course includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
Parking and public transport instructions will be provided in your confirmation email once you have booked the course.
