Watch out… HMO licensing is about!

Feb 26th 2012

HMO licensing was first introduced in England and Wales in April 2006 and now many licences are coming up for renewal. If you are going through this relicensing process, you only have two opportunities to object to contents of your new licence.

You cannot assume that the council will simply re-issue the original licence. Some may seek to change the conditions. For example, the number of people who can live there or rooms that can be occupied. You could also be required to install additional amenities. So please check your paperwork in detail.
