Review of Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMO) Licencing Scheme

Closes 5 Feb 2021

Opened 22 Dec 2020

Overview

The HMO Act 2016 introduced a new licensing scheme operational from April 2019 which transferred responsibility for the HMO regulatory function from the Northern Ireland Housing Executive to Councils and linked the new HMO regime with other critical local government functions, such as planning, building control and environmental health. This questionnaire is part of the review of the transfer of responsibility and the change from a registration scheme to a licencing scheme.
