The legislation for licensing Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) has changed. From 1 April 2018, if you rent out a property to five or more tenants in two or more households, you must apply for an HMO licence before 1 October 2018. The new legislation has removed the requirement for a property to have three or more storeys in order to need a licence.

If you rent out a house in multiple occupation (HMO) to five or more tenants forming two or more households, you must apply for a licence.
