Online HMO Application, Renewal and Variation Applications

The Housing Executive accepts online applications for new registrations, renewal of a registration and variation of an existing registration. Please visit this section for more information:
Please note that this service will not be available when the new licensing scheme administered by the Councils commences. It is anticipated that the new licensing scheme will begin on 01 April 2019.
The HMO Registration Scheme requires the payment of a fee on first registration of the house, and a payment on any renewal of the registration of half the fee which would then have been payable on a first registration of the house.
As each house shall be registered for occupation by a maximum number of occupants, a fee equivalent to £25 per year for each occupant shall be payable on first registration of a house.

Therefore, for a 5-year registration, the initial registration fee effective from 7th May 2009 is:
No. of Occupants Five year fee
3 occupants £375
4 occupants £500
5 occupants £625
6 occupants £750
7 occupants £875
8 occupants £1,000
9 occupants £1,125
10 occupants £1,250
The fee is capped at the equivalent of 10 residents for each registered HMO. Fees must be paid in full on first registration of the house, or on renewal of registrationq
