You’ve found the right property, now you need to find the right mortgage
What is HMO Mortgages?
HMO refers to a “house in multiple occupation”, typically rented out room by room to individual tenants. HMO mortgages are a specific commercial loan to suit this type of property.
HMOs are generally occupied by more than three tenants, not forming a household, who will share kitchen, bathroom and toilet facilities in the house. Each tenant will pay the landlord their rent individually. HMOs are usually restricted in their operation under planning and local authority regulations.
Mortgages for HMO properties are available, but are not widely available and are offered by specialist lenders who understand this market niche.
Defining HMO Mortgages
A HMO consists of one or more accommodation units, which are not self-contained apartments. Occupants are not a single household, and will not be related, and rent the space as their main or only residence.
Health maintenance organization will usually have shared kitchen and bathroom facilities, for the use of all occupants. Each HMO occupant will, individually, pay rent to the landlord of the entire property.
Landlords will often provide services such as utilities within the rental charged. Depending on the local authority where the property is located, and the size of the property, they may need a licence to operate the HMO.
Typically, HMO mortgages will be arranged via a limited company that owns the property or properties. GPS Financial has expertise in this area of specialist lending, having access to niche lenders specifically providing HMO mortgage funding. HMO mortgages can support a range of properties, including:
- Student accommodation
