Housing in Multiple Occupation (HMO)

Can you refuse me a Licence?

Yes, we will refuse to give you a licence if you don’t pass the Fit and Proper Person check. We can also refuse to give you a licence if the property is not of suitable standard. 

The council will not grant a license where:

  • Properties which are clearly well below the minimum prescribed standard.
  • Where there appears to be little prospect of work being carried out within a reasonable period.
  • Where the health, safety and welfare of the occupiers is at imminent risk.
