HMO licence fees
The current fee structure for an HMO licence was introduced by the Executive on 3 July 2017. You can read the full report on the decision to set these fees.
There are two fees to pay:
- The fee on application covers the cost of administration and inspection. This payment is based on the number of rooms being let and should be made with the application – see table below
- The fee on grant of licence covers the cost of the overall management of the HMO licence. This payment is payable just before the licence is granted
Once a HMO licence is granted, a refund will only be given in exceptional circumstances at our discretion, as the fees are calculated to cover our costs, which may have already been incurred.
