Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs)

Why does an HMO need to be licensed?

HMOs with five or more occupants, forming two or more households, share one or more of the standard amenities, need to be licensed by law. The aim of HMO licensing is to make sure they are properly managed and meet legal standards. Having a licence acts as proof of the quality of accommodation you are providing.

Licensing HMOs ensures tenants can live in decent and safe homes.
