Landlords braced for new HMO rules

Landlords affected by the government’s new “house in multiple occupation” (HMO) rules must apply to their local authority for a licence by October 1 or face unlimited fines and possible criminal prosecution. The Residential Landlords Association said the change would result in 177,000 more landlords needing an HMO licence, for homes in which at least two households share facilities – such as a kitchen or bathroom.
