Multiple occupancy homes

A House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) is a house, which is occupied by people who do not form a single household. This section covers the standards that have to be met to become a HMO and how you register.

There is also information on areas that are most likely to affect residents of multiple occupancy homes, such as communal heating charges and housing repairs for communal areas.
