At Grant Property we pride ourselves in ensuring that all properties under our management meet the highest safety & compliance standards. Providing tenants with safe and secure accommodation is our priority giving you peace of mind that you are complying with all your legal obligations as a landlord.
If you want to let your property to more than two unconnected people you will require an HMO (‘House in Multiple Occupancy’) licence which is granted by the local council. The purpose of the licence is to ensure your property is safe for tenants and each council has its own regulations which must be adhered to. The advantage of the HMO licence is that it allows you to increase the number of tenants in your property which can significantly increase the rents you can achieve from your property.
At Grant Property we manage hundreds of HMO properties for our landlords and we have a dedicated HMO team to ensure each property is fully compliant with all the regulations. The volume of work required for obtaining, managing and renewing HMO licenses often surprises many of our clients. The list of duties includes but is not restricted to;
Our HMO team has built up a reputation with councils across the UK for attention to detail and market leading processes for tenant management which have become industry standard. This has resulted in Grant Property becoming one of the largest managers of HMO properties in the country.
Safety legislation requirements in the property industry are regularly reviewed and upgraded, so it is crucial that the landlord or agent is aware of their obligations and that they are adhering to current standards at all times.
