Don’t ignore new HMO licensing rules – Unlimited fines for non-compliance
New legislation came into effect on the 1st October 2018 which will impact over 170,000 landlords. The legislation widens the definition of large HMOs and is designed to limit overcrowding in house shares. Non-compliance can result in unlimited penalties and therefore it is vital that landlords are aware of whether these changes are relevant to their properties.
