Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs)

What are the criteria for a licence to be granted?

Your application will be forwarded to us once Home Safe has confirmed it is satisfied with your application, and has received and advanced the correct fee.

We will only grant a licence once we are satisfied:

  • The proposed licence holder is a fit and proper person and the most appropriate person to hold the licence
  • Proper management standards are being applied at the property
  • The HMO is suitable or can be made suitable for the number of tenants allowed under the licence.
  • The HMO at least meets the minimum standards of amenities and facilities
