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 an 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 and maintain a public register of all registered HMOs.

We hold and maintain the full HMO public register at the main council offices at Gun Wharf in Chatham.
