Houses in Multiple Occupation
All houses let in multiple occupation must be licenced and properly managed in accordance with The Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation (England) Regulations 2006 SI 2006/372 and comply with local authority conditions.
From April 2006 it became mandatory to licence properties of three or more storeys containing five persons or more, comprising of more than one household.
The local council inspects HMOs and if conditions in the properties are not up to standard, the licence could be revoked. HMO landlords in England who fail to apply for a licence may face fines of up to £20,000, a criminal record and potentially rent repayment orders and a management order where the council takes control of their property.
