Houses in Multiple Occupation in Northern Ireland 2019

Written in 2019.

1 April 2019 saw the introduction of HMO licensing to Northern Ireland. Failure to adhere to the new licensing regime carries strict penalties and local council's have adopted a strict enforcement approach to the new requirements. It is essential that anyone providing multiple occupancy accommodation or advising those who live in this type of housing be aware of the new requirements.

This Professional Resources provides background and additional information on the changes wrought by the Houses in Multiple Occupation (NI) Act 216, including:

  • the revised definition of a House in Multiple Occupancy
  • licensing requirements and processes
  • minimum suitability requirements for HMO properties
  • the fit and proper person test
  • management standards for HMOs
  • new requirements in relation to anti-social behaviour
  • inspection and enforcement regimes.
