Regulations made for new HMO regime

A number of statutory rules have been made by the Department for Communities in order to give effect to the new HMO regime coming into effect on 1 April 2019.  The Houses in Multiple Occupation (Commencement and Transitional Provisions) Order (Northern Ireland) 2019 brings any remaining provisions which were not previously enacted into force on 1 April 2019.  The commencement order also includes transitional provisions for properties already registered under the current registration scheme. Article 3 of this Order allows that any property which is correctly registered immediately before 1 April 2109 will be treated as though it has a license under the new regime.  The assumed licence will last until such point as registration would have been due for renewal. 

The following statutory rules provide additional information on the new system for regulating Houses in Multiple Occuation:

  • The Houses in Multiple Occupation (Notice of Application) Regulations (NI) 2019
  • The Houses in Multiple Occuapation (Space Standard) Regulations (NI) 2019
