Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) a lucrative minefield with David Cox

Webinar recorded live on

As rent increases outpace earnings in most parts of the country, more and more tenants are opting to share homes in order to keep costs down.

Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO’s) are governed by a lot of laws and many come with additional regulations imposed by local councils.

During this webinar David Cox, Rightmove Legal and Compliance Director, went through

• The laws governing both the management standards and property conditions required for HMO
• Licensing (mandatory, additional and selective)
• Amenity standards
• The penalties for not getting it right – both fines and not being able to evict a tenant
