Houses in multiple occupation (HMO)

Changes to Mandatory HMO Licensing

From 1st October 2018 the definition of a licensable House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) will be changing. A licence from the Council will be required for all properties that are occupied:

  • By five or more people,
  • From two or more households.

If you operate a HMO that meets this criteria then you must apply to the council for a licence.
