Under current national HMO legislation, all properties let to five tenants or more forming more than just one household and sharing basic amenities (such as, for example, a kitchen, toilet and/or bathroom) must be licensed.


While this naturally applies to all Plymouth properties subject to HMO licensing Plymouth landlords must also:


  • Comply with Plymouth HMO Licensing Standards
  • Acquire their licenses via their local councils –many of which have put additional licensing schemes into action.


This can make the already rather complex process of acquiring an HMO licence in Plymouth even more complicated, stressful and confusing.
