Owners of rented houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) are required by the Housing Act 2004 to have them licensed by the Council where they are occupied by five or more people forming more than one household.
A new fee structure applies to all applications made from 1 April 2019. Background to the changes can be seen on our news page, and the new structure is available to view on our fees and charges page.
Coventry City Council is now offering a free, voluntary accreditation scheme for landlords. Being accredited by us may entitle you to cheaper, longer lasting licences for your properties. Please visit our Landlord Accreditation pages for more information.
