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 have to place on record that working with you guys is far more pro-active that the main banks - I'm finding them slower than ever in their response time and internal procedures, you are very refreshing, keep up the good work.
