The council has introduced additional licensing, which applies to certain Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) not already covered by mandatory HMO licensing, this will come into effect from 1st October 2018.
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.
If you're a landlord or property managing agent who lets houses in multiple occupation (HMOs), you may need to apply for a licence.
To rent out properties in Doncaster you may need a licence. The license you need will depend on the location, type, size and number of people living in the property.
