    Are local council HMO standards enforceable against non-licensable HMOs?

    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 for one person of 9m2, but two of my property's four bedrooms are only 7m2. If the council were alerted to this fact, would there be any legal process open to them by which they could prevent me from letting those two bedrooms?

    No, I dont believe they would be enforceable. Make sure none of the tenants move a boyfriend/girlfriend in though or youll likely have a mandatory licensable hmo
