In relation to re-licensing an HMO, one authority now tells us that either we have to live within 25 miles of a property we manage or we have to appoint a local manager living within that radius. It is claimed that this is a requirement of the law. We do not recall this being a rquirement when we first licensed the house in 2006.
Could you clarify? Is this indeed an explicit and specific and absolute requirement in the legislation, or is it a matter of an individual local authority interpretation?
I would appreciate knowledgeable Helpdesk guidance.
