For years I have happily operated a 7 bed HMO which has 2 full bathrooms.
According to the council bumf a 4 bed house needs one full bathroom. You would therefore think that you can have up to 8 with 2 bathrooms, but no … apparently in order to have 7 people I have in effect to provide enough facilities for up to 10 people.
These standards seem to be national standards drawn up by some local authoirty think tank.
The amenity standards are in this document which apparently is a national standard so the council tell me.
But I really can’t see why if you can service 4 people off one bathroom you can’t service 8 people off 2 bathrooms. I have got to add an extra toilet which will give me enough facilities for 10 even though I have only got 7 occupants.
Has anyone else had any success appealing this sort of bunkum ?
