Extension of Mandatory Licensing for HMOS

Posted: 16/05/2018

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, so that one and two storey HMOs with 5 or more occupants sharing some facilities will need licensing
