We thought it would be useful to provide a quick summary of upcoming Government legislation for HMO’s in 2018 which will affect landlords.
Houses in Multiple Occupation and Residential Property Licensing Reforms – date to be announced
It is proposed that any property with 5 or more occupiers and all those occupiers who are not related to one another will require a HMO licence.
Current legislation states – there would need to be 3 storeys in addition to the 5 or more occupiers to require a licence.
I think that a minimum room size will also be introduced, watch this space…..
