I own a 3 bed flat, in my name, not a Ltd company. When the current tenancy ends I am thinking of letting two rooms out to individuals and retaining the third as a study/bedsit for myself. I pay council tax on my own family house where I reside most of the time.
Does this avoid the rented property then falling under an HMO classification?
Presumably, I don’t go on the electoral roll or council tax register at the property and If the two occupants are students, their council tax exemption won’t be affected.
I would put the utilities in my name and just charge an all-inclusive rent.
