Does a cellar count towards a floor making an HMO?

Hi all,Thanks for the valuable input.Ive just looked at the housing standards and found this>>Mandatory licensing applies if the HMO (or any part of it):
• comprises three storeys or more;
• is occupied by five or more persons, and
• the HMO is occupied by persons from two or more households.

So if there is only 4 tenants,a licence wont be required,as all above needs to apply to be licenced,rather then one of the 3 above?

Thanks.Carl... Read More
