    HMO Licensing

    On 28 December 2017 Alok Sharma, the Housing Minister, announced that the Government would make amendments to the houses in multiple occupation that need licensing. Currently set at HMOs that have 5 or more occupiers and are on three or more qualifying storeys, the new rules will require all HMOs with five or more occupiers,regardless of the number of floors, to get a licence. It is estimated that this will bring another 160,000 properties into mandatory HMO licensing.

    Other changes include introducing minimum space requirements for each room of 6.51 m2 for a single person and 10.22 m2 for a couple.
