My clients have a freehold property converted after 1991 to two
self-contained flats. Each flat is rented to three sharers. Each flat has one tenancy agreement.
The application form which the council sent is as follows;
Housing Act 2004, Part 2
House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) Licence Application:
Under Section 5: Calculation of Fees, it states;
Licence applications are to be accompanied by a fee.
The standard fee is 208 per residential unit, ie for each bedsit room, self-contained flat, non-self-contained flat or bedroom in a house let on a single tenancy agreement to a group of friends.
I understand from the aforementioned that my clients have two units and two sets of fees should be payable ie 2 x 208.
I have contacted Haringey council on behalf of my clients.
The officer in charge tells me 6 x 208 is payable. ie 2 flatss x 3 tenants in each flat x 208.
I believe I am right and the officer is wrong.
Any comments please. It will be very helpful
