What is HMO?

HMO stands for House in Multiple Occupation, which is a property that is shared by three or more people who are not from the same household and who share facilities such as the kitchen or bathroom. If you want to use your property as an HMO, you will need to obtain planning permission from your local council.

To apply for planning permission for an HMO, you will need to submit an application that includes details such as the number of people who will be living in the property, the number of rooms available, and the proposed layout of the property. You may also need to provide additional information such as fire safety measures and parking arrangements.

Unlock the potential of your HMO conversion

it’s important to note that HMOs come with additional regulations and requirements compared to standard rental properties. For example, there may be minimum room sizes, mandatory fire safety measures, and specific licensing requirements that must be met. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in legal and financial consequences for landlords.

This is where Muse Architects can help. Our team of experienced architects can guide you through the planning process and ensure that your property meets all necessary requirements to operate as an HMO. We can also provide design solutions that maximize the use of space and ensure that each tenant has a comfortable and functional living environment.

Our design process begins with a thorough analysis of the site's history and physical properties. We gather information from surveys and discuss your specific goals and objectives with you to create a detailed project brief. During the concept design stage, we work to translate your existing space into a design that meets your aspirations. This is a collaborative process where we brainstorm ideas and provide ongoing feedback to turn your vision into a reality. Our goal is to create a design that aligns with your brief and meets your desired outcomes.

During this stage, we brainstorm ideas and give ongoing feedback to ensure that our designs meet the requirements of the design brief and accurately reflect your vision. We also consider applicable planning policies and conduct the necessary research to identify the potential scope of the project.

To make the most of your existing space, we create layout plans, elevations, sections, and 3D visuals. As we progress through the concept design stage, we continually review and refine the design brief to ensure that the project is feasible. Once the concept design is complete, we prepare the necessary planning drawings to apply for planning permission.

During the technical design stage, Muse Architects will ensure that all aspects of your project are carefully planned and designed to meet your specific needs and preferences. We will provide detailed and accurate building regulations drawings and create a comprehensive set of tender and construction documents, including specifications for materials, finishes, fixtures, and fittings.

Additionally, we will create a 3D computer model of your project to give you a better understanding of how the space will look and feel. By the end of this stage, we will have invited builders to submit bids for the construction of your project.
