HMO / Multi Lets

A house of multiple occupancy is simply a property that is used by a number of none related people sharing the property and some facilities. Usually more than five people over three storeys. A Multi Let differs only in that it is has to be on less than three floors and does not require a licence to operate.

The benefits of HMO’s and Multi Lets are that; to the tenant they get an affordable accommodation, in a nicer property and usually in better location, sharing with others in a more socially inductive environment, at a lower price than renting a single stand alone flat.
To the landlord, they get a much higher rental income that is not reliant on a single tenant, ensuring the constant positive cash flow and rental return.

All sounds great right? However, choosing the right property in the right location with clear expectations and all due diligence completed long before purchase is key. Ensuring that all stress tests are completed with positive expectations. Allowing for interest rate rise’s, confirmation of high demand and a list of interested tenant’s is vital to ensure the success of the project.

Different councils around the country have different regulations, definitions and requirements, so knowing what they are, how to work within and what needs to be done to ensure there are as few delays as possible is also a prerequisite to any project.

The final piece of the puzzle to successful HMO / Multi Let projects is having the right team, systems and processes in place to ensure that all runs smoothly, adhering to all regulations and keeping the tenants happy with the property at close to maximum occupancy.
