Do you have a HMO that you would like managed? Are you thinking of starting up an HMO and need some help and advice to get it up and running?

HMOs (Houses in Multiple Occupation) are increasingly popular among property owners looking for extremely strong returns on their investments.

These properties can achieve 3 x higher rental yields than standard single let properties and meet a strong demand amongst tenants for smart, flexible, affordable living.

 

A HMO is a house or flat that’s let to 3 or more tenants who form more than one household. Whether the HMO requires a licence depends upon the number or tenants, storeys to the property and local authority rules.

HMO properties do require a great deal more hands-on management than single lets, which is why most high street agents shy away from them. They tend to have little understanding of them and the marketplace for HMOs.

To discuss your HMO management requirements, please contact Elma Shortt  on 01923 883 627 or email property@homeherts.co.uk.
