LETTER: I’ve been calling for changes to HMO rules for years

Following on from last week’s front page story on the houses in multiple occupation, I would like to state that I and some other residents have been asking for these changes for a number of years.

If the council is looking into changing the regulations now, perhaps they could put some thought into extra bin payments for those HMOs or lowering rates for those living around such accommodation.

If they want to know where to find what we consider to be houses in multiple occupation so they can get them to register, they only need to ask the residents of Boston. Let’s have them doing it properly.
