Southampton first became a major transit port between Winchester (then England’s capital) and Normandy in the 11th Century, and its long, colourful history is reflected in its many historic buildings and landmarks including, for example, the Southampton Town Walls, Bargate; the Civic Centre and the Titanic Engineers and Mayflower Memorials.

Offering exquisite shopping facilities and a vibrant cultural, arts, entertainment & music scene, Southampton is home to two universities, Southampton City College and numerous 6th Form colleges, as well as a diversity of state run and independent schools & academies.

Listed among the Top 20 UK & Top 100 Global universities and home to the NOCS (National Oceanography Centre Southampton, the focus of marine research funded by the Natural Environment Research Council), the University of Southampton enjoys an excellent global reputation for computer science & electronics, optoelectronics and engineering sciences research; chemistry, oceanography and cancer sciences, as well as sound & vibration research.

Specialising in business & industry services including, among others, training, consultancy, research and design, Southampton Solent University is also home to Warsash Maritime Academy, where training & certification for international off-shore oil and shipping industries is provided.

Major employers in the city include the docks, health, education and property; other business services, retail & wholesale, as well as car & aircraft manufacture, electrical engineering products and cables; petrochemicals, tobacco processing and grain milling.

Boasting a population density higher than London, Southampton has a significant demand for HMO properties, which must, of course, all be licensed in accordance with HMO Licence Southampton regulations.

Southampton HMO Licence Schemes

All HMO properties are subject to national mandatory licensing if they are occupied by at least 5 tenants forming at least 2 households and these tenants share basic facilities (i.e. kitchen, toilet and/or bathroom). This does not include purpose-built flats occupied by 5 tenants or more within blocks comprising of 3 self-contained flats or more.

However, under the Additional Southampton HMO Licence Schemes brought into action on the 1st and 20th of October 2018, all HMOs not covered by national mandatory licensing within the wards of Swaythling, Shirley and Portswood; Millbrook, Freemantle and Bevois; Bassett and Bargate are subject to additional licensing.

This includes all HMO properties with 3 or 4 occupants and purpose-built flats occupied by 3 tenants or more within blocks comprising of 3 self-contained flats or more.
