About Cornerstone on Mandatory, Additional and Selective Licensing

Cornerstone on Mandatory, Additional and Selective Licensing provides an authoritative guide to the licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation and other residential premises under Parts 2 and 3 of the Housing Act 2004. The book offers practical advice and guidance to local authorities and landlords on the licensing requirements as of 2017. The changes brought in during 2017 present a considerable challenge to local authorities as they will become responsible for licensing thousands more properties across the country.

In addition to expert commentary from Cornerstone Barristers, Cornerstone on Mandatory, Additional and Selective Licensing covers legislation, including the Housing Act 2004 and the amendments due in 2017, and case law, such as R(Hemming) v Westminster City Council [2015] (referred to EU Court following the decision of the Supreme Court in 2015), ensuring it provides an invaluable guide for everyone trying to understand the new requirements of the Act brought about by the expansion of the mandatory HMO (Houses in Multiple Occupation) licensing scheme changes.
