Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO)

HMO Licensing

On 1st October 2018 the Mandatory licensing rules changed across England. The scheme was extended to include all HMOs regardless of the number of storeys.  Therefore from this date all HMOs that are occupied by five or more people who are not all related, and where there is some sharing of facilities require a HMO licence. For more information please refer to HMO Licensing and how to apply
