Course of the Month: Principles of HMOs

Victoria Barker
Written by Victoria Barker

Are you a landlord considering letting out your first property as a House of Multiple Occupation (HMO)? Or perhaps you have several HMO’s and would like an update on the law?

Our training course of the month, Principles of HMO’s, has got you covered, and for the month of June you can complete this training course at a 10% discounted rate.

By the end of this year, several changes to the law will come into force that affect landlords who have HMO properties. This includes the law around minimum room sizes, and the extension of mandatory HMO licensing.

Hundreds of landlords have already taken the course so far, and it is the perfect opportunity to  learn about the forthcoming changes, as well as a chance to ask any questions you may have.

As a landlord, it is more important than ever that you are up to date with the law. Recent changes have given greater enforcement powers to local authorities, such as the introduction of civil penalties and rent repayment orders.

Did you know that failure to comply with management regulations for HMOs could lead to a fine of up to £30,000?

And in London, £1.47 million worth of fines have been handed out relating to the management and licensing of HMO’s alone.

Our course will teach you the benefits and potential drawbacks of investing in a HMO. You will have the chance to learn about the additional requirements that come with managing a HMO from our trainer, who is also an experienced HMO landlord.

The course is being run at various locations across the UK, including Manchester, London, Birmingham, York and Bristol.
