I own a leasehold flat in North Wales, it is one of 3 self-contained leasehold flats in a converted house.
I have just received a letter from the council which says that the property needs to have a HMO licence otherwise I will not be able to continue rent it out. They say that it is unclear who the freeholder is since the previous company went into administration. I know this because we have not had any rent demands and we are trying to find out also.
Anyway, my question is about clarification of what a HMO is?
I rent via a letting agent and do not let single rooms.
I do not know what the other leaseholders do.
I read that HMO does not apply where each flat is self-contained and on a long leasehold provided it is not let as separate rooms to separate individuals.
I would appreciate any clarification on this point.
