HMO Licensing Order may affect some landlords with HMO properties

Widespread reforms are on the way that will affect some landlords with HMO properties - If you own one of the 500 private properties in Coventry currently listed as Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) you need to be aware that licensing changes are to be introduced on 1st October 2018.

The government deadline is when the Licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation (England) Order 2018 automatically replaces the 2016 Order meaning no further time will be granted for landlords to make the required changes.
