Home to several notable art galleries and museums, entertainment and music venues, Nottingham boasts excellent shopping facilities, a vibrant nightlife and renowned landmarks including, among others, Nottingham Castle, Wollaton Hall & Deer Park, Nottingham Cathedral and the Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem pub, which is said to be one of the strangest and oldest establishments of its kind in England.


In addition to several independent schools and numerous 6th form colleges & academies including Bilborough College, the Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies and Nottingham College, the city also has two universities, the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University.


Named in 2005 as one of the country’s 6 science cities by Gordon Brown (who was Chancellor of the Exchequer at the time), Nottingham has a thriving economy centring on industries including business & financial services, retail and leisure; life sciences, digital media and low-carbon technologies.


The city’s science-based industries include BioCity, a venture founded jointly by Nottingham’s two universities, which houses approximately 80 science-oriented companies and is regarded as the largest centre of bioscience innovation & incubation in the UK.


Naturally, this combination of excellent educational establishments and diversity of industries attracts large numbers of professionals seeking employment and students – which in turn generates an ever-increasing demand for shared accommodation opportunities. Landlords offering properties to cater for this demand must invariably comply with HMO Licence Nottingham rules and regulations.


HMO Licensing Nottingham


In addition to the mandatory licensing requirements, which apply to any property with 5 tenants or more forming more than a single household (learn more: Gov.UK), HMO Licensing Nottingham is also subject to an additional licensing scheme, which:


  • Requires landlords of properties within designated areas to apply for licences if said properties are occupied by three unrelated tenants (or more) sharing facilities (i.e. bathrooms and/or kitchens) and
  • Covers purpose-built flats


Combined with the city council’s so-called ‘selective licensing’ scheme, which first came into force on the 1st of August 2018, this can make applying for HMO licences in Nottingham a somewhat stressful, utterly confusing undertaking (learn more).
