Winchester Shared Housing Accreditation Scheme

The current scheme is primarily aimed at landlords wishing to market and advertise properties for rent to students through Student Housing Services at Winchester University, but also caters for other landlords who predominantly let multiple occupation accommodation on a shared type basis, and may wish to have their property accredited in order to demonstrate that they are providing safe, high quality and well managed houses for tenants.

Application to join the scheme is voluntary subject to applicants meeting the 'fit and proper' requirement and is a service provided by the City Council of which the key features cover both legal and non legal obligations for landlords.

Attached on this page is the Winchester Shared Housing Accreditation Scheme booklet which provides guidance on the scheme standards which are required in order for a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) property to become accredited.
