This Residential HMO Landlord Health and Safety Policy has been written to help make sure that owners of houses of multiple occupation (HMO) fulfil their health and safety responsibilities to their tenants. This policy is suitable whether you own the property in your own name or have a business name.

Whether or not the HMO is licenced by the local authority you have a ‘duty of care’ to those who rent from you, and you are required to have certain things in place. This policy sets out the key compliance obligations of a HMO landlord.

The main areas where you will need to ensure compliance are:

  • General safety of the premises - how you will maintain it
  • Gas safety
  • Electrical safety
  • Fire safety
