Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) - licence


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're unhappy with the way we have decided your application you should contact us in the first instance.

In certain circumstances you can appeal to a Residential Property Tribunal. We'll tell you about this process when we send you our decision about your licence application.

You must appeal within 28 days of the decision being made.
