    unsure about multiple occupancy

    If i rent a house out to 3 different people,each having there own room and a set rent,does this class as a multiple occupancy or can this be done on a normal buy to let mortgage?


    If you use the fantastic search facility you will find plenty of info on HMO's whether you search the 'forum' itself or look on the home page.

      IMHO Yes this does constitute an HMO. However, your absolute safest bet is to telephone your local council and ask for the Environmental Health Department and ask them this exact same question. It's their opinion that counts.

        It sounds like it. But as above ask for a breakdown of fees first and take it from there.

        Assuming that you are a tenant (there's a good checker on the Shelter website - which might be useful to point your landlord at)..

        There are a number of ways a tenancy can be brought to an end, but for a landlord to end the tenancy, there are only two options (other than by agreement with...

        Hi there,

        I moved into a property 2-3 months ago which was subletted to me by a girl named on the main tenancy contract of the property. I handed over a deposit (which is currently unprotected) and have paid rent on time. She today decided to give me notice to leave, giving me only 2 weeks...

        We had a very high solicitors charge but my partner noticed in their terms & conditions that they had put that if their charges were going to go over £5000 they would contact us first, which they had not done, so the bill was reduced to £5000 plus Vat at £1000.
        And I believe that there...

        Appreciate the clarification, I did do a lot of digging around after you first mentioned exclusive occupation into the laws regarding this so I definitely understand your point there now. And as far as I can tell from that, my being here should constitute the requirements of a (sub)tenancy.

        It is a tad high, unless you get a breakdown of the costs it's just people speculating, as it could be Letters to the T, they could have tried mediation. Most important thing is you've got the property back and your out of the game. Just make sure you CCJ put against the T (you can do it yourself M...

        Probably £160 + VAT per hour. Still like 47 hours though.


        An hour initial meeting, half an hour for the s21, a few hours for the claims paperwork, and total a few hours warrants etc. Ten hours, fifteen maybe we say?...
