The law requires that certain types of rented property are licensed in order to meet standards that ensure a house is safe for the occupants

On receipt of a valid application, an officer will contact you to arrange an inspection of the licensable property. Following a satisfactory inspection, a draft licence will be issued for your comments, followed by a Full Licence which is valid for a period of 5 years.

In order for us to process your application, a valid application must be made.  See the relevant area specific application form for a checklist of supporting documentation that must be submitted.


The HMO licensing fee will be dependent on the area within which your property is situated and will be as follows from April 1st, 2023: 

Mandatory HMO Licence Fee: £761

Mandatory HMO Licence Fee (Renewal): £631

There is no fee for variations to a House in Multiple Occupation licence conditions, but once issued the licence is non-transferable so changes to the licence holder would require submission of a new application.



Please ensure that you read the guidance carefully before submitting an application.
