Register - 8th May 2014
The Housing Act 2004 requires every local authority to establish and maintain a public register of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) licensed under the act.
See the HMO licence register 29-8-14 document in the Documents section to find out if a landlord has been issued with a HMO licence for his/her property.
New licence applications will not appear on our register until they have been processed and issued by us. We regularly update the list of issued licences.
Landlords of properties issued with HMO licences must display a copy of their licence in a prominent position in the licensed premises.
It is an offence for a person to have control of, or manage a licensable HMO without a licence or without applying for a licence. You should satisfy yourself that a licence is in place/an application has been submitted by the appropriate person before you agree to manage a licensable HMO - otherwise you could be breaking the law.
If you have any queries in relation to a property which has been licensed, or which you feel should be licensed, please contact the HMO Licensing Team on 0113 247 6248 or use the email option under the Contact us button.
