    I am in trouble

    The two guys signed contract with me and then brought girlfriends here. I was told I need a license. So I applied and now in processing The council told my bank I applied for a HMO the bank told me I will be in breach of the mortgage conditions and will affect future lending decisions as my mortgage is BTL not HMO type. Mine is small three beds ground floor flat. Please give a solution thanks a lot.

    I wonder if you really need the license. Do the girlfriends actually get their post at the flat, or are they still registered elsewhere?

      Two couples. The rule says if more than 3 share facilities. Now the big problem is the bank. Will I lose my property? Can I tell them I will cancel my application and let it to a family instead?

        Never let sharers sign a tenancy agreement unless they are married. Unmarried sharers should live on the street care of the expert and caring assistance offered by local Councils. Or they should pay MUCH higher rents commensurate with the risk you take.

          Seems to me that the girlfriends are just lodgers. Therefore if anyone needed to apply for an HMO license, it was your tenants.

              Well, they are their girlfriends' landlords, albeit that the rent is not paid in cash.

                What I am really concerned to know is how one tells whether boy and girl living in the same room(s) form a family unit. The reason for my concern is that when I served my "How to Rent" booklet dated 12/12/2017 issue 2.33, form 55b that I issued (the bonking certificate) was the wrong issue dated 12/11/2017.

                The question is whether or not one has to prove the bonking, and what happens if the certificate is incorrect. I was thinking of getting the greenshirts to do a surprise bonking check one night. However it then struck me that if the boy in room one happens to share a bonking partner with the boy in room 2, whether the whole can be seen as one family unit. And what if there are kids?

                Or should I just evict the lot and be done with it?

                  It depends how many people. It is more than 3 and not a family

                      Dene465
                      I have been offered a property with
                      7 occupants. It needs to be a cash purchase. I do not have HMO experience. I am happy for them to stay on although there seem to be rental arrears from some occupants. Also, a large Council Tax arrears case. No paperwork is evident at this point of time....

                      It sounds like a potentially expensive nightmare. Walk away - or pay a solicitor with specialist knowledge of housing/conveyancing law to advise you before you do anything,.

                      At 7 occupants the property may be a sui-generis HMO requiring planning permission. Without this its illegal and liable to a fine of up to £30,000 from the local authority and possibly 12 month rent repayment order for each of the tenants. Add that to the cost of paying the tenants to leave, since...

                      If the HMO is unlicensed I would advocate seeking full vacant possession and make the purchase conditional upon thepresent owner making full and final settlement of all outstanding Council Tax debts. If achieved then an application needs to be submitted to gain an HMO license provided of course that...

                      Tone Lee
                      Hey guys, I have a licensed HMO property, I was thinking about renting it out to one family instead of room by room.

                      What becomes of my HMO license? Do i have to inform the council and let them know the property is no longer being rented out room by room or does it not matter?...

                      You might need to change your mortgage and insurance from HMO to single tenant.

                      It would be wise to inform the council of the change so they don't decide to do a spot check. You might get a refund on your license.

                      Northcave
                      I have a house in Bristol and considering professionally converting the loft. If I do so then I'll have 3 story house with 5 bedrooms. This would make it a HMO but do I need to consider things other than mains wired fire alarms and fire doors?

                      Also is it possible for me to still act as...

                      If this ever gets to court (eg illegal eviction case when you claimed you evicted "lodger" by changing locks, tenant claimed it was AST so unlawful and/or deposit protection penalty claim...) the judge will decide where your principal home is: From what you've stated it sounds easy to argue...

                      Basically it is my primary residence and have a room there but I travel on my boat most of the time. I.e. not around much. Sometimes that means I'm around for a few weeks and then away again for months. That's sailing for you. Its really slow haha!

                      Seems OP is mainly interested in the 7K allowance.

                      OP do you actually live there as you main home or are you planning to pretend to live there (a bad mistake)?
