Extension of Mandatory Licensing for HMOS

Posted: 13/10/2020

Current position
Currently mandatory licensing only affects HMOs if they comprise all of the following:-
        3 or more storeys
        5 or more occupants
        Some element of shared facilities (usually kitchens and/or bathrooms)

What’s New?
The three storey element will be removed, from 1st October. All HMOs with 5 or more occupants sharing some facilities will need licensing.
