All properties that are rented privately in Liverpool must have a license. This is required to show that the property meets a decent standard and the landlord is a ‘fit and proper person’.


There are two types of license


Mandatory HMO License – this covers all properties that are occupied by five or more tenants forming two or more unrelated households or groups (you are not all in the same family)

Selective License – this covers every other type of property (there are some limited exceptions such as University owned accommodation or living as a lodger in someone’s home)


If the property you are living in is not licensed then Liverpool City Council can prosecute your landlord/agent as this is a criminal offence. Furthermore if the prosecution is successful then the court can apply a rent repayment order which could mean any rent you paid whilst the property was unlicensed can be returned to you.



You can check if your property has a Mandatory or Selective License on the Liverpool City Council website.


If you believe the property you are living in is unlicensed you can advise Liverpool City Council at
