What is an HMO?

HMO Renovation Specialists in Coventry, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Solihull and Leicester.

The term, HMO, is an abbreviation of a house in multiple occupation. The revision of the term in the Housing Act 2004 clarifies an HMO as an abode where:

  • • It is a private rental, and at least three individuals live at the property, forming more than one household.
  • • Multiple occupants share the home’s amenities, such as a wash space, kitchen or living room.
  • • A large HMO is a home that consists of five or more individuals that share amenities.

These are the basic principles determining whether an accommodation is an HMO across Coventry, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Stratford-upon-Avon, Solihull and Leicester. However, stricter tests such as the standard test, the self-contained flat test and the converted building test measure the same HMO conversions criteria against different building types.

Who lives in an HMO?

Many HMO conversions and HMO renovation projects are located close to universities to provide affordable and nearby housing for students. The lower rental values offer an affordable option for many people who find themselves priced out of the single occupancy rental market.

How do landlords get started?

Once a landlord has located a property for development, they should contact an HMO specialist for relevant advice. HMO specialists will help them determine the type of criteria the council will use to test the conversion, whether it will need planning permission, and what work will be required to ensure fire safety before applying to the relevant local council.
