As I understand it, a HMO is a property that has more than one (unrelated) household within it, where part of the property is shared.
As such, this could even be a two bedroomed flat so long as the rooms are let separately (not the whole flat let as a joint tenancy). If this is the case, then when people move out of the property, such that there is just one resident left, then does the HMO cease to be a HMO until such time as someone else moves in to one of the rooms?
If the answer to the above is yes (it ceases to be a HMO), then should the Council Tax be reduced to take account of the single person discount?
Also, for the period when there is just one occupant, if the property ceases to be a HMO, then does the occupant become liable for paying the Council Tax instead of the landlord being liable?
