    Article 4-Changing existing HMO

    I have a 4 bedroom house in tower hamlets which I am currently renting with an additional hmo licence. I have just found out that an article 4 direction for hmo's is starting at the beginning of 2021. Would I be able to extend the property to create additional rooms and then rent these out without planning permission after 2021?

    I think that the answer is probably no, (although I'm not certain). However, if you were planning to have more than 6 people in the property, then you would need planning consent regardless of the Article 4 Directive, as it would be a sui generis HMO.

      I thought since the property is being changed from a 4-bed to a 6-bed hmo within the same C4 use class planning would not be required.

        You may be right.
