Renting HMO via verbal agreement?Make Text Bigger
I rent a property from a private landlord, via a verbal agreement, no contract. I am subletting 4 rooms out, which makes 5 of us in the property. The landlord is happy with this as long as I don’t over crowd the house. He has also made the rent very cheap so he doesn’t have to do any maintenance in the house.
Now the house isn’t in the best of conditions and via rent money I am slowly changing this, but it takes time when you are on a low income. Do I need to get a HMO licence or dose my landlord need to pay this?
I am very new to all this and it’s my first time renting a house and subletting. I saw a screwed up letter behind the washing machine from the last tenant and the local council have changed it that you have to pay a HMO licence from a household of 3 back in June, it use to be 5 from what I found out.
How long do I have to sort this out if I have to sort this out?
