House in Multiple Occupancy / HMO

A​ house in multiple occupancy (HMO) is summarised below; 

  • A house split into bedsits where the tenant has exclusive use of their room but shares a kitchen or bathroom and WC

  • A house or flat share with 3 or more tenants who are not related to each other;

  • Students living in shared accommodation where they have exclusive use of the whole house;

  • An owner-occupier with more than 2 lodgers who have a licence to occupy their accommodation.

The HMO sector is much more stringently regulated and monitored than the general lettings market. Apex CAD can aid you with any architectural drawings that you require for converting a building to prepare for HMO or if your local council requests drawings.
