HMO Certificates in London

What is a HMO Certificate?

A HMO certificate is a document that a landlord needs if they want to rent out a property to multiple occupancies. Multiple occupancy is where three or more people who aren’t from one household (house share) live together and share the bathroom and kitchen facilities. You must obtain this licence from your local council in order to lease your HMO property legally.


How to Obtain Your HMO Certificate

You must obtain your HMO Certificates in London from your local council. The requirements that need to be met will vary from council to council and the property itself, however, common requirements will be:

  • Suitable Fire Alarms Fitted
  • Emergency Lighting Installed
  • A Passed Electrical Safety Inspection
  • A Passed Gas Safe Inspection
  • Fire Rated Doors Present

You may not need all these requirements, or you may need more; your local council will examine your property and tell you exactly what you need in order to receive your HMO certificates in London.
