Register of licensed properties

Register of licensed properties

What the register of licensed properties is and what we do with your personal data

It's a legal requirement for us to keep a public register of all properties licensed under the Housing Act 2004. 

The register includes:

  • names and addresses of a property’s landlord and any managing agents 
  • permitted number of occupiers (for HMOs)

For more information about what we do with your personal data, see our Private Housing Service Privacy notice.

Accessing the register 

The Housing Act 2004 requires us to make the contents of the register available to the public and, if requested, to provide a copy of the register.

There are three ways to access the register.

Short online register

The short online version of the property register has addresses, property and licence types for the licensed properties.
