What is an HMO?
HMO stands for House in Multiple Occupation and generally refers to one of the following:
    A house split into bedsits
    A house or flatshare where each tenant has their own tenancy agreement
    Students living in shared accommodation

The term can also refer to hostels and Bed and Breakfast accommodation which isn't just used for holidays but these two categories aren't relevant to most residential landlords.

Depending on your property, its tenants and where you live you may be required to obtan a license for your HMO. See HMO licensing for more information on the regulations where you live.

Do you need an HMO?
If you let out the following rental property, it will be an HMO:
    An entire flat or house which you let to three or more tenants.
    Bedsits which you let singly and where the tenants share facilities of a kitchen, bathroom and toilet.
    Separate flats (which include studio flats) let singly where the tenants share some facilities.
    A building which is entirely converted into flats which doesn’t meet the current regulations (the 1991 Building Regulations) and where a third of the flats are let on short-term tenancies.

For the rental property to be an HMO the tenants must use it as their only, or main, residence and the property should be used solely, or mainly, to accommodate tenants. If your property is let to students or migrant workers, it will be treated as their only, or main, residence. This also applies to domestic refuges.
