HMO Public Register
The Housing (Scotland) Act 2006 Part 5 requires Fife Council to keep a register containing information about HMO licences for living accommodation situated in its locality and applications for them.
You will find details of Fife Council’s HMO Public Register on this page. To search for a particular property or see what is licensed in a particular street press Ctrl F. The latest valid HMO licence applications submitted to Fife Council can be found on the Weekly Notifications list on Fife Direct.
You can also notify HMO Licensing regarding any property that you believe is being operated as an HMO and which is not detailed on the HMO Public Register. Alternatively you may be having a problem with a property which is licensed. Any information you pass on to us can be given anonymously. This information will help us deal with landlords who are flouting the law or where they are not managing their licensed house effectively. Please report unlicensed HMOs by using the online form available on this page.
For ease of use the full HMO Public Register has been separated into relevant time periods starting in 2001 and running up to the present day. The HMO Public Register can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
Please note that Fife Council must exclude from its HMO Public Register any information it would otherwise be required by subsection (2) to enter in the register if the authority considers that entering the information is likely to jeopardise:
(a) the safety or welfare of any person, or
(b) the security of any premises.
The Public Register will be updated four times throughout the year. You can view the publication for each quarter in the publications section below.
Note: the updated Public Register will be available a week after the previous quarter ends.
