All houses in multiple occupation should be safe and well managed. HMOs with 5 or more tenants also need a licence.
Tell us if you have concerns about any HMO, including:
- Issues affecting the health, safety or welfare of tenants, such as no working fire alarms
- Disrepair, waste accumulations or overgrown gardens
- Problems with antisocial behaviour affecting the neighbourhood
- If you suspect a property is overcrowded or may need a licence
You can check if a property has a licence by searching our public register.
