What are the Requirements for a HMO

To ensure the property is an HMO, the following must apply:

  • the property is suitable for the number occupying it (e.g.: facilities and size)
  • the manager of the property (be you or an agent) is “fit and proper” (e.g.: no criminal record or landlord laws or code breached)
  • every year an updated Gas Safety Certificate must be sent to the local council
  • installation and maintenance of smoke alarms
  • Electrical Appliance Safety Certificates must be provided

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.
