Barnet Council recently consulted on an Additional Licensing Scheme. This was approved by the Housing Committee on 1 February and the designation signed on 4 April 2016. This scheme will come into force on 5 July 2016. You can view the Public Notice.

For more information on the consultation for an Additional Licensing Scheme, go to engage.barnet.gov.uk.  

Barnet is a popular place to live, with excellent schools, open spaces and transport links. In 2015, it became the most populated of the London boroughs, so the demand for housing is acute.

We're keen to work on sustaining the quality of the private rented sector by working with good landlords to improve the standard of accommodation in Barnet. Where housing standards are found to be unacceptable the appropriate enforcement action will be taken.

If you're a Barnet Homes tenant, find information which is relevant to you at the Barnet Homes website.
