What is a HMO

An HMO is a house in multiple occupancy.

The 1992 Order describes the statutory definitions applying to a wide range of properties.

The properties, by their nature, have specific responsibilities and risks in terms of fire safety and health and safety.

If both of the following apply, the property is a House in Multiple Occupancy ( HMO ) :

  • at least 3 tenants reside – making more than one household
  • shared toilet, bathroom or kitchen facilities with other tenants

A large HMO is if all of the following apply:

  • it is at least 3 storeys high
  • it has at least 5 tenants residing – making more than one household
  • shared toilet, bathroom or kitchen facilities with other tenants

I’ve just heard from my solicitor that he has the funds in from Interbay, had paid off our mortgage and is sending the balance on to me, which means that finally this is all over and  I can move on.  Thank you all so much for your help in arranging the mortgage, I am sure that my future plans will involve needing to arrange finance, and I will happily come back to you again.
