Court Case re HMO rooms being deemed to be Band A Council Tax DwellingsMake Text Bigger
CAN YOU HELP?
A HMO landlord friend of mine is in court on Friday challenging the VOA ruling on a HMO rooms.
- NO ENSUITE ROOMS
- NO KITCHENETTES
- 100% SHARED FACILITIES
- BASIC ROOM FURNITURE ONLY IN ROOMS
The VOA claim the re-banding increase tax by factor of six is because the rooms are individual dwellings, as doors have locks on them.🤔☹
Can you offer him any advice to challenge the VOA please be specific referring to statutes and paragraphs of acts as that is what judge is seeking on the day?

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT 👌
Some local councils are starting to charge by the room for houses of multiple occupancy (HMO), so the bills for tenants are increasing significantly.
A formal review is required to create an HMO specific rule that is fair and not restrictive. The current rule seems to be to grade each room as band A. This is unrealistic when compared to a house at band A, the room space for a HMO is far less and has far less impact than a whole house.
The impact cost for tenants is unfair and needs a review.
A full review is required before all councils bring in Band A charges to HMO rooms and cause money worries to many people.
please sign to give your support to a full and fair review of HMO council tax charges.
