Guidance for completing your HMO application

Next steps

Once the application has been submitted and received with the fee, an officer will contact you to arrange an inspection.

The officer will determine if any improvement works are necessary, which might include the provision of additional amenities such as bathrooms or kitchens, and how many people should occupy the HMO.

A licence will be granted if:

  • the house is or can be made suitable for multiple occupation
  • the licence holder is a fit and proper person and the most appropriate person to hold the licence
  • any proposed manager is a fit and proper person
  • the management arrangements are satisfactory

Once we make a decision, you will be advised whether we  will grant or refuse the licence application.

If you have any questions please email the Housing Enforcement team
