NI Houses in Multiple Occupation
From Monday 1 April 2019, licensing laws for shared flats and houses will change.
On this date the Houses in Multiple Occupation Act (Northern Ireland) 2016 will come in to operation and local councils across NI will take over responsibility for regulating houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) from the NI Housing Executive.
Moving forward, all HMOs must be licensed by their local council and all HMO owners must comply with the Houses in Multiple Occupation Act (Northern Ireland) 2016.
Applications will only be accepted from 1 April onwards.
