Housing in Multiple Occupation (HMO)

What Standards do I need to Maintain in a HMO?

There are certain standards that you will have to abide to when running a HMO. These are in place so that your tenants are safe. There are the Management Regulations which regulate how a HMO is managed and  Amenity Standards are in place so that the rooms are the right size and the number of facilities provided are adequate. All properties are inspected using a risk based system known as HHSRS (Housing Health and Safety Rating System) which ensures there are no hazards in the property.
