Applying for a HMO Licence from Bradford Council

On this page you will find the information and appropriate forms required to apply for a licence to operate a HMO (House in Multiple Occupation) in Bradford district. There are forms to apply for the first time (initial licence) and for the renewal of an existing licence. All the forms below are available in an appropriate format to allow you to print them out, fill them in, sign them and return them to the Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) Team by post or personal delivery. If you require any further information please contact us.

If you are applying for a licence you must pay an initial licence fee to cover processing the application, at the same time as you send in the application form. This applies to both initial and renewal applications. You should make a payment using the Council’s online payment facility on the web payments page for HMO Licensing.

There are three rates of initial licence fee depending on the size of the HMO that you want to licence and you should choose the correct fee level. The initial fee paid is non-refundable. If your application is successful we will then send you an invoice for a final fee which covers the full cost of the licence.

There is more information about the fees in the HMO licence fees document below.
