Housing in Multiple Occupation (HMO)
What should I expect?
Your details will be sent to other members of the council, Police and Fire Service to determine whether you are a Fit and Proper Person to get a HMO Licence. They will investigate whether you have been associated with any Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) or criminal activity linked to the address.
When the Draft Licence is issued to you, it will also be sent to other interested parties which are outlined in your application form. If there are no comments been brought to us from the interested parties then we have no problem in issuing your Full Licence along with Conditions and Intention Notice.
Your Full Licence will usually last you 5 years. However, if there are concerns then you may only have your licence for 1-4 years.
