As of 1st October 2018 ALL Houses of multiple occupation are now required to be licensed. Previously only larger HMO’s of 3 or more storeys AND 5 or more persons forming 2 or more households were required to hold a license. However as of 1st October 2018 it is now mandatory that all HMO’s with 5 or more people forming 2 or more households are required to be licensed regardless of how many storeys the building has.
