Is it a legal requirement that every bedroom in a licensable HMO has to have a wash hand basin?
I have been jumping through hoops for a year to try and get a licence on a three storey 6-bed HMO. I had a letter from the council in 2011 saying that as I had three bathrooms and two separate WCs, all with wash hand basins, I didn’t have to put basins in the bedrooms, but would have to when I re-licensed in five years time.
I have now been given a draft of a licence to check which requires me to put basins in within two months.
