Houses in multiple occupation licence

Houses in multiple occupation

Owners of rented houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) are required by the Housing Act 2004 to have them licensed by the Council where they comprise three or more storeys, are occupied by five or more people forming more than one household.

Please note that we have moved to a new office, and can no longer accept licence applications in person.  Please send all documents by e-mail to or by hard copy to the address below.  Please do not attempt to hand deliver applications.

Please note that our prices have recently changed - see the Charges page for more information.

Please note that new legislation is being introduced which will affect which HMOs need to be licensed, and will impose new licence conditions upon HMOs.  Please see our News Page for more information.
