A House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) is a house or flat lived in by people who are not from the same family (including half relatives, common law partners and stepchildren). This is their only home and they pay rent to live there. They may share a kitchen, bathroom or toilet.
We need to make sure that all HMOs are is safe to live in, are in good repair and are not overcrowded.
We have a register of licensed houses in multiple occupation (HMO) in Aldershot and Farnborough. Generally, homes that let to five or more people from more than one household, need to be licensed. We also inspect all other non-licensed HMOs.
If you live in or know of someone who lives in an HMO that you believe should be licensed, please fill in this form. If you have concerns about any type of HMO, you can also tell us using this form too.
We will arrange to visit the property and check whether there are any immediate issues, such as fire safety concerns or disrepair that the landlord needs to deal with.
We will contact the landlord to make sure the work is done. If the landlord refuses to meet the standards required, we may find it necessary to take enforcement action.
