Register of HMOs in the district
Owners/managers of a house in multiple occupation (HMO) that is rented out to five or more people, who form two or more families, and who share facilities such as a bathroom, kitchen, sink or toilet, must have a valid HMO licence.
Licences cannot be transferred to another property, or to a different person. If circumstances change, owners/managers will need a new licence.
We publish a register of houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) in the district.
