    It would depend on a variety of things- whether the property was owned, rented privately or through a council or housing association, how many litters they're breeding, local authority guidelines, if licensed how many dogs their licence covers, if they are running a business, etc.

    Speak to your local council
    However
    I suggest, if you want to be viewed as a serious breeder, rather than a backyard greeder, you choose one breed to start with and make the best puppies you possibly can

    I got the impression OP lives next door to the breeder, and are not the breeder themselves?

    Speak to your landlord, but this already sounds like too much to me.

    That sounds like a potential puppy farm & it must be unpleasant having that many animals in a residential area.

    I would contact the council, his landlord & maybe RSPCA for starters.

    The OP and I posted our replies at exactly the same time
    My apologies to them, as I replied on the scant information in the first post
