Contradictory information online regarding the new space standards that apply from 1 October in relation to non licenced hmo’s.
Specifically does the minimum bedroom size of 6.5 sqm apply to a three bedroom property occupied by three non related sharers.
In planning terms a HMO is defined by three non related sharers and often confused with 5 sharers/3 stories, soon to apply to 2 story, the articles posted appear to assume the space standard applies to licenced HMO’s only
Will a three bedroom house, with two small bedrooms at 6.3 sqm and 4.4 sqm be in breach?
