Information for landlords

Changes to landlord licensing legislation

From 1 October 2018 there will be changes in the way houses in multiple occupation (HMO's) are licensed. All HMO’s regardless of the number of storeys, with 5 or more occupiers will now require a licence. For more information visit our changes to HMO licensing page.

5. Rent increases

If the tenancy agreement you have with your tenant includes a procedure for increasing rent, you must stick to this.

If you are considering increasing the rent of a currently tenanted property, visit the GOV.UK website.
