HMO licence conditions change on 1st October 2018
From 1st October 2018 landlords must have an HMO licence if:
- five or more tenants live in their property and
- these tenants are split into two or more unrelated ‘households’ or groups e.g. a couple and a family of three and
- these tenants share facilities such as a bathroom and kitchen
A new licence condition also introduces minimum bedroom sizes for HMO properties. Find out more on our HMO licence guidance page.
