Prior to October 2018 HMOs (houses in multiple occupation) that had three or more storeys and were occupied by five or more persons forming at least two separate households, required a licence under the Housing Act 2004 .

Since 1 October 2018, mandatory licensing of HMOs has been extended so that HMOs which house five or more people in two or more separate households and share a bathroom or kitchen will require a licence.

New mandatory conditions to be included in licences have also been introduced, prescribing national minimum sizes for rooms used as sleeping accommodation and requiring landlords to adhere to council refuse schemes.

Further information can be found on the website of the local authority in which the property is situated.
