How does a HMO work?
At Stonehouse Lettings, we have all kinds of properties on offer for let. A HMO Tenancy is a specific tenancy allowing unrelated people to share a property. This usually consists of a group of 3 or more persons. This type of tenancy is popular with students and also working personnel. The rent and bills are shared between the sharing tenants.
Getting a HMO License
A special HMO Licence is required when you rent your property to sharers who are unrelated to each other. Such a Licence can be obtained from the local Council, in which the property is situated.
At Stonehouse Lettings, we can assist a Landlord through the process of obtaining a Licence – from completing the Application Form and Displaying of Notices through to being present for the meetings at the property with the relevant Representatives from the Council and also Scottish Fire & Safety. Stonehouse Lettings can also arrange any legislative works which may be required, in order to prepare the property for letting, under the new Licence. Further assistance can be provided for any general maintenance or upgrade works that you may also wish to instruct, from upgrading a kitchen or bathroom or painting and decorating, right through to the supply of furniture and furnishings.
Stonehouse Lettings recognise that each property and Landlord is different and we can work with a Landlord in order to deliver the required service, specific to them and their property.
