  • Tenant causing annoyance
    Federico
    Hello everyone . I'm writing in here as we have a flatmate who is causing annoyance in the shared house where we live. This person and us had several arguments using strong words and impolite behaviour. He got an anger problem and one day it was even close to fight with me. He's smokes in the house...

  • AirBNB within HMO

    Hi,

    I own a Licensed HMO, the license allows for up to 5 tenants - in 4 rooms, I have 4 tenants in 4 rooms.

    I have a smaller room that the License - when it was imposed stopped me renting out, and is now vacant - minimum room sizes were quoted as reasons it could not be included....

    Thanks.
    I think I need to confirm that you could actually let an unused part of an HMO - say for storage, or for say a holiday home let.
    If you going the AirBNB route - you would need to confirm in the eyes of licencing what is a 'temporary' let, and how long that is measured as.

  • HMO and lack of deposit protection
    FannyAdams73
    I rented a room in a house as a lodger. When I moved out and the landlord wouldn't give me my deposit back I started to look into the whole lodger issue and discovered I had been living in an HMO (with 4 other tenants "lodgers"). I went back to him and tried to reason with him about the deposit...

    +1,loanarranger's advice excellent. Were I he I'd be using to check if what mortgage applicants say is correct (eg where they really live, with whom... )

    You may also be amazed what you find with Google and/or social media.

    May I suggest you use a company which I find very useful, I am not advertising it as there may be similar on the net so hopefully given the circumstances the Moderator will allow a name drop, The Co is 192.com, pay the fee and insert his name and approx location/ town , in turn they will produce all...

    That depends on what the actual occupancy is. If a genuine holiday for a couple of days, yes. However if the occupant turns out to really be living there (how would you stop him..) it's an AST - deposit protection, etc etc etc....

    Agreed, a more thorough understanding of the HMO reg's is needed, I asked one chap at the NLA helpline and he felt it should not be an issue.
    Going by our local councils own written up standards - I think they may glaze over if I were to ask a question thats outside there sphere of thinking and...

    You could probably rent it for storage but as Artful says, the HMO regulations are broad and cover a wide range of occupation conditions. I have no experience of this and its worth you checking with your local authority but I assume that in the case of 3 or more lodgers in an owner occupied property...

    I understand a let such as with Air BNB is outside the scope of the Housing act and the requirement for an AST, it is termed a bare 'licence', with only personal rights, not any proprietory rights (as per an AST).
