HMO Licensing Register

We maintain a register of licensed HMOs in the borough.

View the register of licensed houses in multiple occupation.

The register is frequently updated and accurate at the time of publication (last updated 12 July 2023).

Notify us if you think a property should have an HMO licence but is not on this list.

If you require the licence holders' names and addresses, this can only be disclosed as part of the full HMO register. The HMO owner’s names and addresses are personal data and therefore are not disclosed, but the licence holders’ names and addresses are included as those are required to be included by the Regulations.

The HMO register is produced from the database of licensed HMOs held by us. A report can be produced from the database and either posted to you as a paper copy or sent to you as a PDF version by email.

We are authorised by the Housing Act 2004 (section 232) to recover our costs of producing and sending a copy of the HMO Register, and this cost is £60.

We will only provide copies of the register in paper or PDF format, not Excel or CSV.

The Information Commissioner's Office has advised councils that a disclosure of the names and addresses of each licence holder is lawful and not a breach of the first data protection principle, as the duty of the Council under the Housing Act 2004 is to provide a copy of the register.

However, the ICO has also advised that the form in which the register is provided may be considered unfair and breach the DPA. The requirement under the Housing Act is to provide a copy of the register on request, there is no obligation to make it available electronically in Excel or CSV format as this might be unfair and excessive given the potential for ease of access by a large number of people.

If you decide that you require a copy of the HMO register, make your payment at and email your request to
