I recently left a tenancy with a student landlord company in Leeds and we have just had the list of property charges back from the end of tenancy. Amongst them is an ‘HMO Charge’ (£20 each, houseshare of 5) but with no further explanation. I assume this stands for ‘House of Multiple Occupancy’ but I do not know why we have been charged this. I have emailed the landlord for clarification but no reply so far.
Does anyone know what this charge is for and whether it is still legal to charge for something like this after the 2019 Tenants Rights Act?
