From October 1st 2018, the rules around HMO licensing have changed to further protect tenants from poor living conditions.
Any landlord who lets a property to 5 or more people, from 2 or more separate households, must be licensed by their local housing authority. These changes will enable Councils to take greater action on those landlords renting out sub-standard and overcrowded homes, affecting approximately 160,000 houses in multiple occupation (HMOs).
How we can help
In line with the changes to HMO, we have further enhanced our licensing capability enabling full management of the HMO licensing process from application to issue, including ongoing administration, and enforcement of any licensing schemes. At Tascomi we are committed to the ongoing development of our solutions based on customer feedback and legislative requirements.
