If you're a landlord or property managing agent who lets houses in multiple occupation (HMOs), you may need to apply for a licence.
The council has the power to introduce additional licensing, which applies to certain Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) not already covered by mandatory HMO licensing.
We currently operate two Selective licensing schemes in Doncaster. One in Hexthorpe and one in a designated area of Edlington. If you rent out a property that is tenanted in those areas, you are likely to require a licence.
To rent out properties in Doncaster you may need a licence. The license you need will depend on the location, type, size and number of people living in the property.
