Application to revoke a house in multiple occupation licence

You can apply to revoke a HMO licence if the property no longer requires a mandatory licence.

For example:

  • The property is now occupied by a single family
  • The number of occupiers is less than five
  • The property is to be sold therefore you are no longer the relevant person to hold the licence.

If you are selling the property and it will remain a licensable HMO, the licence cannot be transferred. The new owner must therefore submit a HMO licence application for this property immediately on completion of the sale.
