What Is An HMO?

Houses of Multiple Occupation

A property is classed as an HMO if three or more unrelated persons rents parts of the house, possibly sharing facilities like bathrooms and kitchens. Not all properties are suitable to be HMO’s and there are a number of extra regulations and costs but HMO’s can be substantially more profitable in comparison to standard residential lets. Many Landlords are now looking for HMO’s to be part of their portfolio’s in order to increase cash flow.

What return on investment (ROI) can I expect?

HMO’s have more overheads but can produce up to 75% more rental income and a ROI of 13% to 20%
