  • House in multiple occupation


    Houses in Yeovil, some of which have become HMOs. A house in multiple occupation (HMO), or a house of multiple occupancy, is a British English term which refers to residential properties where ‘common areas’ exist and are shared by more than one household. Common areas may be as significant as bathrooms and kitchens / kitchenettes, but may also be just stairwells or landings. HMOs may be divided up into self-contained flats, bed-sitting rooms or simple lodgings. Strictly speaking, HMOs are not the same as purpose-built blocks of flats, since most result from the subdivision of houses (often but not always large houses) designed for and occupied by one family. Some legislation makes a distinction between those buildings occupied mainly on long leases and those where the majority of the occupants are short-term tenants.
