HMO Licensing. If you are renting a home in Scotland and you have more that two unrelated people living in the property, the chances are you will need an HMO License.
What do you need to do ? Apply to the local authority for a license. Before you do this, it would be a good idea to have the property looked over before you do. Why ? Best to get an idea what you need to do and if the property is compliant on room sizes etc.
Take the opportunity to gain the experience of Dandy Handyman Services and experience in these matters before you emabark on spending thousands of pounds, maybe unecessarily.
What do you need to make your flat HMO Compliant ?
