Property licensing regulations

Row of houses

Property licensing regulations vary from borough-to-borough and can go beyond the licensing of House of Multiple Occupations (HMOs). With a variety of legislation on the subject it can be a complex and confusing field to navigate, especially for landlords with multiple properties in different boroughs but, with more changes due to come in to effect this year which could potentially affect all privately rented properties within certain geographical areas, it is a subject all landlords should be aware of.

To find out more about the licensing schemes that might affect your borough you can contact your local Chestertons’ office or visit the London property licensing website for helpful information, advice and support.

If you are still unsure as to which regulations apply to your borough please contact your local council or seek independent legal advice.
