HMO licensing fees

If you're the landlord of a House of Multiple Occupation (HMO) which requires licensing you should apply for an HMO licence via our online Licensing Portal.

If you need to renew your existing HMO licence, please contact HMO licensing for a link to the online Licensing Renewal Portal via email: hmolicensing@york.gov.uk.

HMO licence fees are collected in 2 staged payments:

  1. your first stage fee payment will required once your application has been assessed and accepted as complete, you will be notified of this and be required to make payment within 14 days in order for your application to be confirmed
  2. your second stage fee payment will need to be paid when your application has been processed and we have decided to grant the licence issued

There is a reduction of £75 to the second stage fee if you've already attended a recognised training course.

Note: All quoted fees are for the current financial year and are VAT exempt. As of 1 April each year please be aware that these fees will increase.

Fees for HMO licence renewals

Licence holders renewing a licence for the same property will be charged a 'renewal fee', which is lower than the full HMO application licence fee (provided we receive your application in time).

If we receive an incomplete or late application, we'll charge the full fee (as for an initial application) as detailed above. However, HMO training discounts will still apply.

Note: All quoted fees are for the current financial year and are VAT exempt. As of 1 April each year please be aware that these fees will increase.

Fees for 2023 to 2023

Band Number of occupants First stage fee (£) Second stage fee (£) Total fee (£)
A 5 to 6 occupants £522 £348 £870
B 7 to 9 occupants £558 £372 £930
C 10 to 14 occupants £579 £386 £965
D 15 or more occupants £639 £426 £1,065

We'll charge an additional charge (based on the hourly enforcement rate) if we have to do more administrative work than is normally expected, such as identifying unregistered HMOs and bringing them into the licensing regime. This applies only where we make a decision and don't take formal enforcement action.
