TENANTS in Portsmouth could help rid the city of ‘exploitative’ landlords in the council’s latest pledge to crackdown on issues with shared houses.

At a cabinet meeting yesterday it was agreed that residents of houses in multiple occupancy (HMOs) could be involved in monitoring shared homes through the council's re-established local consultation panel on HMO licensing.

The panel, which will be chaired by housing boss Councillor Darren Sanders, would also push to bring back additional licensing laws on HMOs affecting those with a minimum of three occupiers, up from the mandatory five.
