Definition of a HMO

Houses in multiple occupancy mean that 2 or more persons reside at the property that are not all members of the same family and are described as “qualifying persons”.

To be a “qualifying person” means that the property is the only, or principal, residence. For example, the principal place of residence by a student in term time.

N.B.: A member of the same family is considered to be:
- spouse (living together as husband and wife), civil partner (living together as if civil partners), parent, grandparent, brother, sister, child, grandchild, uncle, aunt, niece or nephew of the other person.

Just to say a big thank you to you and all the others who have helped with this process – including the underwriters at Shawbrook who met me early this morning. We have completed on the purchase successfully! This would not have been possible without your intervention – so a big thank you.
