    Ensuites in every bedroom

    I f I put an ensuite in every bedroom would I have to pay council tax for every room?
    If I put ensuites in all but one bedroom would I still have to pay CT for every room?

    I'm trying to maximise the number of people in my HMO.

    I am considering turning the shared living room into another bedroom and putting an extra cooker in the kitchen. This will make 6 bedrooms with 8-9 people.

    This is solely due to the licencing I would have to pay the council £510 for the fifth person for 3 years and £30 for additional people.

    You either have to pay council tax for the whole property, or not at all, assuming everything is let for the whole year. I don't know the fine details about when a flat becomes self contained.

    If you mean two cookers, I doubt my council would licence you with only two cookers between six households.

      I believe that 7 or more people makes it a sui-generis HMO and subject to planning permission

        At the moment I can have 1 cooker between 5 single rooms so 6 would be an improvement.
