Apply for a HMO

Please note that we are currently experiencing difficulties with the application payments. We are advising to pay for your HMO Licence via cheque. Here is where you send the cheque:

Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council

Sandwell Council House

Freeth Street

PO Box 2374


B69 3DE

On the back of the cheque please write the HMO property address, the name of the applicant and the cost code: 46030 K03001 0000

Alternatively, you can contact the contact centre and make the payment: 0121 569 2200.

If you do wish to make the payment yourself then you can but please make sure that you are not using Safari as the internet browser as this is mostly where the problems are coming from. However, using another internet browser may still not work, that is why we are advising the use of cheques as this is the most effective approach. 

Applying for a HMO is absolutely fine and you can apply as normal, the only issue we are having is with the payment.

If you have any questions please email us at
