    I think it was in the RLA distance learning material. I telephoned EHRC at the time to check, assuming that it must be a mistake or at least only in specific circumstances, but they said the same as the RLA.

      Found it! (for all property I think, not just HMO..). See...
      https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga...s/division/3/4
      Section 32: Application of this Part

      Effect

      123. This section provides that this Part of the Act, which prohibits discrimination, harassment and victimisation in relation to the disposal, management and occupation of premises, does not make it unlawful to discriminate against or harass people in those circumstances because they are married or in a civil partnership or because of age.
      So you can insist that (say) tenants are over 25 or under 65 and may not co-habit if not married or in a civil partnership.

      Wow!
