The Government carried out a regulatory impact assessment on the effect of licensing of houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) during the formation of the policy. The report of the assessments were published and made available via the Libraries of the House and placed on the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister's website in December 2003.

The Government will also be publishing later this year further regulatory impact assessments to accompany each of the pieces of secondary legislation needed to implement the licensing of HMOs.
