Certain houses in multiple occupation (HMO's) are required to be licensed by Mole Valley District Council (MVDC).
A House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) includes:
An HMO is any house or flat which is occupied by more than one household (i.e. not all members of the same family). If these facilities are for exclusive use but they are not self-contained with the living accommodation, the property will still count as an HMO.
In simple terms, only large HMO's that meet the following criteria will need to be licensed:
If you are a landlord, manager or tenant looking for advice on licensing requirements or are aware of an unlicensed HMO operating in your area then please contact the Environmental Health Team via email email@example.com.
If you would like to apply for a licence online, please complete an electronic application through Businesslink. Alternatively, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. An Environmental Health Officer will advise you about licensing and the steps that have to be taken to apply for a licence. You can find more information about HMO licensing on the 'Department for Communities and Local Government' website.
Tacit consent does not apply to these licences as it is in the public interest for MVDC to process your application before it is granted.
