Court Case re HMO rooms being deemed to be Band A Council Tax Dwellings

Reply to the comment left by Mark Alexander at 14/01/2020 - 16:12
This is (yet another) worry! We have HMOs matching two of the above examples:
1. "HMOs with little or no adaptation"- some with no adaptation other than door locks (of course as HMOs they would have fire doors, smoke alarms etc) >> VOA should not be able to subdivide te property.
2. "HMOs with adapted letting rooms" - where we have added an ensuite (shower, WC and wash basin) within a bedroom of an otherwise non-adapted house >> VOA might potentially consider this as a separate rateable unit, even though there is only a shared kitchen in the property.

If the Govt's aim is to dissuade private landlords, they are doing a great job!... Read More

R2R challenges?

Hi Mark, without wanting to copy the whole thing, in 1.1 it mentions "Permitted Use … for a maximum of [ ] residents.", and in 22.10 it mentions "Not to sing or dance or play any musical instrument … as to be audible outside the Property or any other occupiers of the Property.", but otherwise no mention of multiple occupiers. but not really mentioning maximum number of sub-tenancies.

This could mean this agreement could work for a student let with one joint -and-several AST, but not individual agreements for working occupants. I am hoping to be corrected there, please.
Robert: as an owner with mortgaged, licensed HMOs. No-one is keen to provide a copy of their agreement!
Can any of the R2R trainers out there shed more light on these dark corners, please?... Read More
