Multiple occupancy homes

What is an HMO?

A House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) is a property which is let to at least three tenants who form more than one household and who share a toilet, bathroom or kitchen facilities.

Information for tenants

The council is responsible for enforcing HMO standards, so if you live in an HMO and feel there are any unreasonable hazards which your private landlord is not dealing with, please report it.
