  • Painting in a HMO house
    stuart123
    Hi,
    I have a four bed HMO house let to four professionals, looking to paint the house and also plaster where required for the complete house, this will take 5 to 7 days to complete the work.
    All the tenants were fine and cooperative, except one tenant, who has changed his shift from morning...

    Quite possibly, but I guess leaving one bedroom to be painted at a later date may be a reasonable compromise for the moment.

    Assuming these are room only tenancies then they have no rights over communal areas or exterior unless you've given it to them contractually. Harassment issues aside, the tenant cant prevent you from doing the work....

    Hi all,

    Completely new landlord here, we have a 4 bed house which we have struggled to sell, so have decided to rent rooms out. We are moving out and it will be rented to 4 individuals. We have been in touch with the council and they've written back formally saying we don't need planning...

    The HMO definition triggers a need to manage it in certain ways, including additional fire safety, but doesn't trigger a need for licence. Councils may have Additional Licensing, in which case you will need one for three or four people. However to absolutely require a licence, a house or converted...

    Best to use a tenant assessment company to do all the reference checking. I would not recommend accepting any references direct from a prospective tenant.
    Referencing companies charge a modest fee per tenant, and its well worth it. I can recommend one to you if you PM me.
    You will need to...

    As you are letting the rooms yourself you decide what is the best background checks to make for the type of tenants you wish to have in your house. If you are taking out tenant rent insurance you will need to comply with their terms but the main area that I checked were:

    1. Employed - take...

    Good morning

    Plastering and painting aren't noisy jobs. I would just make sure that those doing the work are aware there may be someone sleeping so they don't put a radio on and take care when moving around any furniture etc. Provided tenants have notice of the works they should accept the communal areas need to...
