New legislation

New 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 (HMO), 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.
