Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs)

How do I apply for an HMO licence?

If your HMO requires a licence you should read our guidance notes (PDF) [84KB] (opens new window) on applying for an HMO licence.

From 1 November 2018 all HMO licence applications will be processed on behalf of Great Yarmouth Borough Council by The Home Safe Scheme Limited, our HMO application service partner. To submit your application, visit The Home Safe Scheme (opens new window) website.

Payment will be required upon application, as before, and if everything is satisfactory with your application Home Safe will forward your payment to us with the recommendation to issue your licence.

Please take note that if you are considering applying for an HMO licence, you should contact the Council's Planning Team to check that the property has planning permission for HMO use.
