If you are a landlord who owns property in Coventry, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Stratford-upon-Avon, Solihull or Leicester, that underwent conversion into an HMO, and you want to restore it to a residential house, Future Build can help. We are experts in HMO reversions, where we can work on buildings with self-contained flats or rooms and turn them back into a family home.
The duration and type of construction work needed to convert an HMO back into a residential dwelling will depend mainly on the size of the property. If the property has been used a large HMO with five or more occupants, a loft or basement will likely have undergone conversion into a bedroom or self-contained flat requiring more work. More straightforward, three tenant HMO properties usually only need a few interior walls removed without much fuss.
If the local council requires planning permission for HMO reversions, it is typically far more convenient to obtain than HMO conversion. However, it isn’t always straightforward. Change of use planning permission will need to be granted, and in most cases, it will be, but if the local council has a deficit of low-value rental properties, they may keep not revoke the HMO licence and could allow it to run until its expiry.
