Payment information - you will be asked to pay the licence fee before submitting your application

We accept the following cards: Visa, Visa Delta, Electron, MasterCard Debit, MasterCard Credit and Maestro.

New HMO licence application

Renewal HMO licence application

Once you have submitted an application, you will receive a confirmation email from IDOX with a DSFX number and a pdf copy of the application attached (check your junk mail).  This is your evidence of submission and you should keep it in a safe place; and we will contact you in due course.  You do not need to contact B&NES HMO Licensing to check that we have received it.

If you have not received this confirmation email, then you may not have submitted an application and you should check your IDOX account and draft submissions.

After 30 days you will receive an email from IDOX stating that your draft application or submission will be deleted within 2 days, this is normal practice as they only keep hold of applications and any supporting documents for this period of time.
