I have a 3 bedroom new property with 3 WCs an ensuite to one bedroom and a family bathroom services the other two bedrooms.
The property has a large separate lounge and a separate kitchen diner.
A brother and sister from the same family and then a separate family friend wish to rent together all being on the AST.Therefore there are two families.I live in East Devon where it quotes 5 or more people make it an HMO … My question is … Is this deemed an HMO ? The list of properties in my Local Authority all list 5 or more people are deemed HMO property.There are no properties register as HMO with only 3 people in them.
I have asked Local Authority for a reply or confirmation but they are slow in giving a response.All help gratefully received
