New Fee Structure and Introduction of 3 year licenses for Houses in Multiple Occupation

 

From 1st June 2017 there will be a new fee structure introduced for HMO licenses. 

 

Having carried out our public consultation during March the feedback received influenced the new fee structure which resulted in the Regulatory Committee approving 3 year licenses.

 

If your licence is due for renewal from 1st June or you are applying for the first time the new fee structure will be applied (please see full report here http://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/download/meetings/id/53919/item_64_-_proposed_fees_for_hmo_licences detailing the  fee table which was approved). If your application is received before 1st June it will still be processed under the old fee structure and licence issued for 1 year.

 

If you have any queries please contact the Licensing Service on 0131 529 4208 or 4042.

 

Yours faithfully

 

Catherine
