Mandatory licensing for HMO landlords aims to raise standards of accommodation in the private rented sector.

HMOs provide essential affordable housing for many tenants who need it. HMO licensing is intended to ensure that all these properties enjoy a decent minimum standard of management. Raising standards of management will benefit tenants and the wider community as well as landlords who already manage their properties well.

Collectively, badly managed properties can drive down values in an area, which many landlords find frustrating.
