The complex HMO licence requirements Birmingham landlords must comply with can be confusing. Cost-effective, unique and straightforward, HMO Advice’s HMO Management package takes both the confusion and stress out of HMO Licence Birmingham applications.
Situated 203.4 km (126.4 miles) north-west of London and 139 km (86.4 miles) south of Manchester, the city of Birmingham boasts excellent shopping facilities (with the Bull Ring being its premier shopping destination) and influential, vibrant culinary, grassroot arts, music and literary scenes.
Birmingham is believed to have been established as an Anglian tribal groups’ primary settlement during the late 6th or early 7th Century. Much of the city’s early history has, however, been lost and Birmingham’s growth into the city now considered the Midlands’ commercial, financial, cultural and social centre did not really start until the 18th Century.
Today, the city perfectly blends historic architectural sites like Birmingham Cathedral, Aston Hall, The Council House and Birmingham Town Hall , for example, with ultra-modern landmarks like the iconic, futuristic Selfridges Building, the NEC (National Exhibition Centre), ICC (International Convention Centre) and, of course, its notorious ‘Spaghetti Junctions’.
as well as the Birmingham School of Acting, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Birmingham Institute of Art & Design and an array of other further and religious education establishments.
Its excellent educational facilities mean Birmingham now attracts more full-time students than any other UK city outside London. Significantly swelling the city’s population during term time, many of these students look for HMO accommodation – which must, of course, be licensed under current HMO Licence Birmingham provisions.
