Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs)

All HMOs in Gedling Borough with 5 or more tenants who do not form a single household, i.e houses with individually let bedrooms but shared facilities such as kitchens and bathrooms. These properties will need a licence from the local Council which is responsible for the area where the property is situated.

Mandatory HMO licensing also covers some flats that were converted without Building Regulation approval subject to section 257 of the Housing Act 2004.

Before you begin the application, please read the Application Guide which explains what supporting documents you will need, it contains information on applying for multiple properties and detailed information on how to apply.

The application should take approximately 45 minutes to complete.
