HMO Guide

A House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) is a building, or part of a building, that:

  • is occupied by individuals who do not form a single household
  • is occupied by those individuals as their only or main residence
  • rent is payable by at least one of the occupiers
  • two or more households share one or more basic amenities

Purpose built blocks of self-contained flats are not HMOs, but houses or buildings that have been converted into a block of flats may be a HMO if:

  • the standard of conversion does not comply with the 1991 Building Regulations
  • less than two thirds of the flats are owner occupied
