Let for 2 to 3 days a time – HMO licence required?Make Text Bigger
We have an 8 bedroom (7 en-suite) property that we let via booking.com to guests. Most guests only stay for 2-3 days and no more than a week.
We have been told that the property does not qualify as an HMO as it only offers temporary occupancy to guest.
We do not have a reception or bar, but have a kitchen and living area.
The council inspector telephoned to inform us that he would like to view the property and that he will send an email ,but we are yet to receive any correspondence. My partner an I are concerned as he wants to come on Monday.
Do we require an HMO licence and what can we do? Can the council inspector turn up without informing us in advance as he promised to do?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
