If you're a landlord or property managing agent who lets houses in multiple occupation (HMOs), you may need to apply for a licence.
We currently operate two Selective licensing schemes in Doncaster. One in Hexthorpe and one in a designated area of Edlington. If you rent out a property that is tenanted in those areas, you are likely to require a licence.
Properties of three or more floors, with five or more tenants belonging to two or more households, require a licence from the council.
Houses in Multiple Occupation regulations place a duty on the manager of the property to provide and maintain good living conditions to protect the tenants from risk of injury.
