All large HMOs need a licence from the local council.

From 1 October 2018, significant changes are being made to which HMOs are licensable and requirements for minimum room sizes in HMOs in England.

Changes to mandatory licensing

In addition to mandatory licensing, a local authority can designate specified areas as being subject to additional licensing (where any HMO requires a licence regardless of occupiers and storeys) or selective licensing (where any rented property requires a licence).

From 1 October in England, mandatory licensing is changing and The Licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation (Prescribed Description) (England) Order 2018 will replace the 2006 order of the same name.

The licence must be applied for before 1 October 2018 in order to lawfully continue renting out the property.

FAQs

Why are people selling HMO?

Running a HMO is more complicated than a standard buy-to-let – there’s more renters to cause damage, a higher turnover of tenants, increasing compliance and a greater number of HMO properties that need licensing. Today’s onerous requirements are proving too much for many landlords.

Can I sell a HMO with tenants in?

When selling to Open Property Group, there is no need for vacant possession. In fact, we welcome HMOs where there are tenants living there.

Are HMO properties worth more?

A HMO’s value will depend on many things, such as the size and condition of the property, the habits of the tenants, the length of any lease and whether the buying audience is another landlord or an owner-occupier.

Will you buy a large student house?

Many HMOs serve the student accommodation sector and have five bedrooms or more. This narrows down the audience of buyers as many owner-occupiers don’t want a property of that size or configuration. Open Property Group, however, makes cash offers on all HMOs, no matter how large they are.

Will I need a licence to run a HMO?

The Government states an HMO must have a licence if it is occupied by 5 or more people. It’s also left up to a local council’s discretion if other types of HMO need a licence.

Will my HMO be inspected by the council?

Councils are required to inspect all licensed HMOs within the licence period. A Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) risk assessment will be conducted and unacceptable risks found must be rectified.
