Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs)

Check a HMO licence

If you live in a licensed House in Multiple Occupation (HMO), a copy of the licence must be displayed at the property, in a place where all occupiers can see it.

We also keep a Public HMO Register, which includes the addresses of the properties. We do not provide the names and addresses of licence holders in electronic format in the HMO Register as this would not comply with data protection requirements.

If you wish to make an appointment to inspect the statutory register or be provided with a hard copy, please email the Environmental Health team at

Report an unlicensed HMO

If you know of a property that is offered for rent as a House in Multiple Occupation that is not listed as licensed on our HMO Register, please let us know. Email us at
