Licensing of HMOs
Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMO) rules intended to improve the standard and safety of accommodation in the private rented sector, came into force on 1 October 2018.
If you rent out a house in multiple occupation, you will need to apply to us for a licence.
There are other fees chargeable for HMOs under the Housing Act 2004. See the Environmental Health Fees and Charges page for more information.
