Exeter Council adds to HMO classification

Exeter Council have ammended their regulations covering Houses in Multiple Occupation following a recent consultancy period.

Two additional property types will be classified as HMO from the 23rd February 2015.

These are -

Flats or maisonettes either above commercial premises (shops, offices etc.) or in mixed use buildings, where the flats or maisonettes are let to three or more people, forming more than one household, who share a kitchen, bathroom or toilet

Buildings which have been converted entirely into self contained flats, where the conversion does not meet the standards set by the 1991 Building Regulations, and where less than two thirds of the flats are owner occupied (properties converted into 2 flats or maisonettes will only require a licence if both flats or maisonettes are rented).
