If you own or manage a privately rented house in multiple occupation (HMO) in Ealing it is a legal requirement to obtain a property licence. In some areas of the borough you will also need a licence to rent out a house or flat to a single household. 

More information about the licensing schemes can be found on the following pages. These pages will guide you to the type of licence you require and through the application process.
