An HMO is a property rented out by at least 3 people who are not from one household, such as a family, but share facilities such as a bathroom and kitchen.
The Housing Act 2004 requires large HMOs to be licensed to ensure minimum standards of safety and maintenance.
When you need a HMO licence
An HMO needs to be licensed if it has 5 or more tenants, forming 2 or more households and using shared facilities such as toilets, bathrooms and kitchens.
Public HMO Register
The Housing Act 2004 requires that local authorities hold a public register of all registered HMOs.
