The law relating to shared houses or houses in multiple occupation has changed. Since 1st October 2018, landlords of most Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) that house five or more people and not a single household must apply for an HMO licence.
According to the Housing Act 2004, a House in Multiple Occupation, or HMO, is a building, or part of a building, that is occupied by three or more persons who do not form a single household - in other words, are not family members.
