Oxford City Council operates a register of HMOs (houses in multiple occupancy) in the city. An HMO is defined as “a building or part of a building that is occupied by three or more people from two or more households (unrelated families) who share facilities such as a kitchen or bathroom, pay rent and it is their main place of residence.”1 The latest copy of the register (an Excel spreadsheet), dated 21 July 2017 is published on the Council’s website.
I have extracted the HMOs in the OX3 postcode area – there are 729 of them – and put them on a Google map.2 Explore at your leisure!
2. A few premises with more than one HMO (e.g. a house with 2 flats) might only show as one marker on the map.
