  • Tenants subletting?
    Berlingogirl
    I let my property to a couple who now say his uncle and her sister are coming to live with them. I believe that they are the uncle and sister ie the tenants are telling the truth about the relationships so it won't be a HMO.

    Do I have any responsibility for checking the relationship and...

  • Reply to Tenants subletting?
    theartfullodger
    I'd refer them to the bit in tenancy saying no other occupants without LL permission, and ask for copies of passports or driving licences and exact relationship (ie the link by whom..).

    Some cultures (eg the wife, essex, '50s..) have almost all local males as "uncle" and females...

    It's one of those better to be safe things.
    If they turn out not to be who they say they are it's an HMO and you could get into trouble (the tenants probably won't be in trouble).
    If they are who they say they are, all is well.
    So (assuming I'd allow it at all - see below), asking...

  • Council Tax exemption and other tenants
    Danielledej
    Hi all,

    I am managing a HMO with up until now only professionals. One of the tenants will be starting a full time course and will therefore be exempt from council tax. I have informed the other tenants that their bills will go up, however one of them is now demanding to see proof that the...

  • Reply to Council Tax exemption and other tenants
    jpkeates
    I think that that has to be the position.

    The tenants obviously accept the rule about how the payment is shared, so they have to accept that if you're happy that the necessary conditions have been met that's it - the rule is something you've made up, so you get to decide....

  • Reply to Council Tax exemption and other tenants
    Welshie
    Well your issues are interlinked as tbh none of your tenants are liable for the Council Tax. So they are all effectively "exempt" as they live in a HMO, which is the reason why you are liable. You should really just build the Council Tax charge in to the rent you charge them and not charge...

  • None mandatory HMO requirements
    daveg
    If I rent a 3 bed house to a couple and their friend I understand that it will be an HMO but licensing will not be mandatory.

    Is it true that because it is an HMO it will be subject to all safety requirements that apply to HMO's such as fitting 30 minute fire doors and fully interlinked...

    Danielledej
    It is not a new tenant but one that was a professional and is now starting a uni course. Rule for the house has always been that only professionals share the council tax which everyone has agreed to.

    so the issue is not who should or shouldn’t pay but what information do I have to share...

  • Are local council HMO standards enforceable against non-licensable HMOs?
    JamesHopeful
    I have a non-licensable HMO (four tenants over two storeys, with no additional or selective licensing schemes in place in the area).

    My question: are the local council's own HMO standards enforceable against my HMO? My concern is that the council's standards require a minimum bedroom size...
