Answer the questions on this page to find out if you need an HMO property licence.
Before you start
When you check to see if you need a licence, you'll be asked how many households live at your property.
A household can be:
- a single person
- a couple that are in a relationship living together
- members of the same family who live together.
A house can have more than one household.
For example, if two couples live in the house, this would be two households, another example is where five people not related or in a relationship live in an HMO, this would be five households.
Please note that due to coronavirus we are operating a reduced service, as many of our officers are working to respond to the pandemic and keep the public safe. This means it will take longer to deal with your request than usual. Thank you for your patience.
