Response

1. Are there plans for a single VOA (council tax) banding for HMO properties?

The Council does not determine the Band for a property. The VOA will determine if the property should be treated as a single assessment or individual assessments for each bedsit. Generally a bedsit will not meet the definition of self-contained accommodation and HMOs are generally assessed as a single unit.

 2. How much does it cost to renew the license?

 The fee for relicensing an HMO is £378 for a 5 bed HMO plus £5 per room after that.
