Landlords who rent out homes to students or large groups of other people have been warned not to get caught out by new House of Multiple Occupancy( HMO) rules.
The Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) has said that many local authorities have indicated their intention to change the rules surrounding homes inhabited by groups of unrelated people, known as Homes in Multiple Occupation (HMO).
Until last year, landlords only had to apply for an HMO licence if the property had six or more unrelated tenants with shared amenities such as a bathroom or kitchen over three levels.
However, the rules – known as Article 4 – now cover any home with three to six tenants who share common facilities.
