Reputed to be one of England’s oldest cities, with excavated signs of early settlements dating back to the Iron Age (2nd or 1st Century BC) and occupation by the Romans from about 47 AD onward.

Now boasting the East Midlands’ second largest economy, a vibrant cultural, music and arts scene and excellent shopping, dining and sports facilities, Leicester is home to numerous parks, museums and notable theatres. The city’s long history can be seen in its diversity of architectural styles, historic sites and landmarks including, among many others, the:

  • Magazine, or Newarke Gateway,
  • Arch of Remembrance,
  • Jewry Wall Museum and
  • Leicester Cathedral

Home to several independent and comprehensive schools, Leicester is also home to the University of Leicester, the De Montford University and the National Space Centre (partly due to the University of Leicester being among the UK’s first universities specialising in space science).

The city’s thriving economy is supported by industries including:

  • Agriculture, forestry & fishing
  • Accommodation & food services
  • Arts, entertainment & recreation
  • Education, health & other services
  • Financial, business & insurance
  • Information & communication
  • Manufacturing, Construction & Motor trades
  • Mining, quarrying & utilities
  • Professional, scientific & technical
  • Public administration & defence
  • Transport & storage
  • Wholesale, Retail & Property

Offering both excellent educational facilities and outstanding employment opportunities, Leicester annually attracts great numbers of students and professionals hoping to find employment.

For many of these individuals, HMO properties offer the most convenient and affordable type of accommodation. Under current legislation, landlords offering such properties for rent must acquire a Leicester HMO Licence.

HMO Licensing Leicester

HMO properties in Leicester must be licensed if they are occupied by a minimum of five individuals who:

  • Are not from a single household
  • Share facilities such as, for example, a kitchen, a bathroom and/or a toilet

As landlords must comply with certain basic housing, health & safety, fire safety and size standards, the process of obtaining an HMO licence can be complex, time-consuming and occasionally both baffling and stressful.

Leicester council is also proposing to introduce an additional, selective licensing scheme for areas with high private rented accommodation levels, which include parts of Braunstone Park, Castle & Fosse; Rowley Fields & Saffron; Stoneygate & Westcotes (learn more).

If this proposed scheme is brought into force, HMO licensing Leicester could become even more complicated and confusing.
