Sometime ago I purchased a large property in Portsmouth. I have converted the property so it has 6 bedrooms but it behaves largely like two flats. 3 bedrooms, a lounge, bathroom, toilet and kitchen are on the ground floor.
The ground floor has its own front and rear access as well as a door to the first floor hallway. On the first floor there are three further bedrooms, a bathroom, toilet and kitchen with access to a loft room. I have a brother and sister on the ground floor and a friend of theirs is living in the spare room down there.
On the first floor I have a couple who are friends of mine. I am currently living in my loft room that has ensuite so I don’t disturb others in the house. The loft room isn’t an ‘official’ room. I think I have wondered into HMO territory and could really use some advice about how best to avoid it!
I don’t wish to get a licence and would prefer to use the property differently if this was the only way to avoid it. Any solutions would be hugely appreciated, I need the best financially viable way of letting rooms with minimal redtape!
Thank you so much,
