I would like to hear other members opinions on HMO room sizes. I understand that national standards for room sizes for singles over 10 years old is 6.51sq m so that should include adults as well.
I have two rooms in an HMO which are 7.6sq m and 7.0 sq m respectively and below the minimum room sizes required by the council who have issued my HMO licence and whose room size requirements exceed national standards.
Is there anything preventing me from renting both rooms out to one person on the basis that one is for sleeping and the other for extra living space? I can either issue one AST with both rooms or even a lodgers agreement.
I would be very interested in the views of other Landlords on this.
