HMO and Principles of Lettings

A house in multiple occupation (HMO) is a property with multiple tenants who do not form one single family or household. Investments in houses under multiple occupancy can be very profitable with high returns on investment, but the management of HMO is far stricter for the landlord and anyone managing the property e.g. Letting/Managing Agent.

Recent changes have given greater enforcement powers to local authorities, with the introduction of civil penalties and Rent Repayment Orders significantly increasing financial penalties that local authorities can apply to landlords and managers who do not meet their obligations. A 'manager' can be a letting/managing agent or the landlord who has a direct involvement in the day to day running of the property, so it is vitally important that both landlords and managers are aware of the legal responsibilities they have.

This one day course, designed to suit landlords, managers and letting/managing agents, covers the principles of this detailed and antiquated subject, giving you the level of broad knowledge to confidently consider investment or management of someone else's investment. The course will also give a general overview of setting up tenancies for HMO and to explore the entire process involved from completing relevant checks to gaining possession for HMO properties.

The course tutor is an experienced trainer with a strong letting agency background and has specialist HMO knowledge and a track record of delivering courses on behalf of councils.

As a requirement for RLAAS accreditation, the course will also include an optional assessment which underpins the day's learning. Upon successfully passing the assessment you will qualify for 5 core CPD points as defined by RLAAS.
