Paramount Investments specialise in the sale of hostels, HMOs, care homes, bed sits, guest houses, B&B's, sheltered housing, rest, retirement & nursing homes in London, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol, Cardiff, Leicester, Hull, Belfast and Bradford.

HMO property investments can produce very attractive rental incomes, however given the regulation and mortgage requirements, investment consideration should be balanced against the benefits that a residential buy-to-let property could provide. 

HMO's, Hostels & Care Homes For Sale in The UK

The general definition of a House of Multiple Occupation (HMO) is a house which has five or more bedrooms and is more than three stories high.  This definition can vary between local authorities. It is therefore best to check the definition with the pertinent local authority before purchasing.

Mortgages & Finance for Buying HMO Property

Lenders deem HMO property as commercial property.  Unlike a buy-to-let mortgage which is based principally on the income potential of the property, HMO lending is based on the borrower’s personal circumstances. 

Applicants for lending on this type of investment property will typically be asked for a full statement of their assets and liabilities.

The deposit for HMO property (currently 35%) is often higher than on a buy-to-let property (normally 25%). Given the mortgage restrictions, HMO property investors are cash buyers as a result of a lender’s requirements.

Change of Use, Planning Permission & Consent for Properties With Private Tenants in Multiple Occupation

Planning permission may be needed if a house is to be used for multiple occupation. If, however, the use has existed for a long time, it may be possible to obtain a certificate of lawfulness instead of planning permission.

Planning permission is not required for a house where it is used:

  • by a single person or by people living together as a family
  • by not more than six residents living together as a single household.

However, a property which is not considered to be an HMO for planning purposes may still fall within the definition of an HMO under housing legislation.

Landlords must satisfy both Planning and Housing Act requirements, which are independent of each other. It is advisable to clarify the planning issues at an early stage
