If you are planning to rent your property to people who will be sharing the same kitchen and bathroom, you must have knowledge of Planning Permission for HMO. You need to be aware of the legal procedures in order to avoid any fines.
The regulations for General Permitted Development Order (GDPO) were amended on 1 October 2010.
These permitted development rights give permission for change of use between the two use classes, from C3 Dwelling House to C4 HMO (House in Multiple Occupation) subject to certain limits and conditions.
Permitted development is permission granted from the government only when the changes you wish to make comply with its regulations. Changes made to the order allow landlords to pursue the changes between certain use classes without a planning permission subject to conditions. Please refer to ARTICLE 4 DIRECTION.
