Finance for HMO Properties

HMO stands for House Of Multiple Occupation, this is described under Sections 254 And 257 of the Housing Act 2004. The building can be classed as an HMO if it is:-

  • A house split into bedsits
  • A house or flat share where each tenant has their own tenancy agreement
  • Students living in shared accommodation
  • DSS tenants sharing one property on separate tenancy agreements
