HMO standards and further information

Westminster standards

We have produced four sets of standards to cover the different types of multiple occupancy properties in Westminster. In larger mixed use buildings it may may be necessary to refer to multiple standards. When the council issues a licence, it may require works conditions to ensure these standards are achieved.

Westminster's HMO standards were updated April 2021
