Houses in multiple occupation

Report an HMO

We are working hard to identify houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) across the borough, to ensure they meet the appropriate standards and that they are adequately managed.

Licensing of HMOs aims to:

  • protect the health, safety and welfare of all occupiers
  • help integrate HMOs into neighbourhoods
  • help in the reduction of anti-social behaviour
  • promote environmental goals

Improve the quality of the HMO housing rental stock.

If you suspect any property within the borough is  operating as an unlicensed HMO let us know
