HMO License

How Govt defines an HMO property? When a property is let to at least 3 tenants who are not members of the same family, forming more than one household, it is called an HMO property. The term “household” means either a single person or members of the same family who live together. It could be married couple, living together or people in same-sex relationship. In an HMO properties toilet, bathroom or kitchen facility are mainly shared facility. HMOs is very popular among the landlords and some specific group of tenants due to the financial benefits. HMOs tenants are mostly students, young professionals and migrant workers who like to live economically in city areas.

Govt and local council’s concerns on HMOs.
