HMO Landlords

Letting a property as a house of multiple occupancy (HMO) can provide a very good rate of return on your property investment, but it is not as straight forward as just splitting the property into individual units and letting them out.

There are strict national legislations and local regulations that you must adhere to, which can put off most Landlords looking at offering a HMO as part of their portfolio.
How is a HMO defined?
Your home is a house in multiple occupation (HMO) if both of the following apply:
  • at least 3 tenants live there, forming more than 1 household
  • you share toilet, bathroom or kitchen facilities with other tenants

Your home is a large HMO if all of the following apply:

  • it’s at least 3 storeys high
  • at least 5 tenants live there, forming more than 1 household
  • you share toilet, bathroom or kitchen facilities with other tenants

A household is either a single person or members of the same family who live together. A family includes people who are:

  • married or living together - including people in same-sex relationships
  • relatives or half-relatives, eg grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings
  • step-parents and step-children
HMO Licenses
All properties that are classed as large HMO require a licence which can be obtained from your local council, providing you meet their criteria and assessment.
