We have a proactive inspection programme for licensed and non-licensed House in Multiple Occupation (HMOs).

Inspections and standards

Our inspection programme includes flats in multiple occupation and self-contained flats. If conditions in the properties inspected are not up to standard, the landlord or owner is required to improve them.

Homes in Multiple Occupation - Inspection Request

HMOs that do not require an HMO licence may still need fire precaution works to be carried out and the provision of extra amenities. For example, kitchen provisions, number of toilets and bathrooms - these are detailed in our Amenity Standards.

Self-contained flats

Where a property has been converted into self-contained flats/units and the building work was completed before 1 June 1992 or which was dealt with by regulation 20 of the Building Regulations 1991 and less than two-thirds of the self-contained flat is owner occupied, the property is a section 257 HMO and subject to safety inspections and must comply with The Licensing and Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation (Additional Provisions) (England) Regulations 2007.
