IS THE HMO YOU HAVE IN MIND FEASIBLE?

Talk To An Expert To Explore The Feasibility of your Project

We're Here To Answer Your Questions

Converting your property into an HMO requires excellent understanding of the local regulation to make sure you are managing your risk in the correct way. 

A successful HMO development takes into account the impact of three main sets of rules:

  • Planning Regulation
  • Building Regulation
  • HMO Licensing regulation
 
 If only one of the above is not followed correctly there is the danger that your HMO will not be rentable or mortgageable by the time you complete the renovation works.
 
For this reason getting expert advice at the early stages of your project is crucial to avoid costly mistakes down the line.
 
During our HMO Design Consultation Call, you will benefit from our vast experience in the HMO sector and get key insights that will allow you to reduce the risks related to your project.
 
Some of the questions we will answer during our call are:
 
  • Should I convert my property into an HMO?
  • How do I start an HMO?
  • Do I need permission to change my property into an HMO?
  • What are the requirements for an HMO?
  • What is the minimum room size for an HMO?
  • How many bedrooms can I fit into my property?
  • How much will it cost to convert my property into an HMO?
  • How long will it take to convert my property into an HMO?
  • How to get planning permission for my property?
  • What to submit in a full planning application?
  • What should I know about Article 4 in my Local Area?
  • Can a landlord enter an HMO without notice?
  • How do I increase the visibility of my property?
  • How feasible is my project development?
  • Is there a demand for HMO tenants in my local area?
  • What’s the % planning success rate in my area?
  • How many bedrooms and en-suites can I fit?
  • Do I need a living room?

I was very impressed with Giovanni at WindsorPatania he was friendly and help explain the project to me in a way I could understand. Being a first time investor I really felt he was more like a partner in my team then an architect.

Exceptional service at all stages of the process from Windsor&Patania. They created a vision of a beautiful home from an under-developed heritage property. They led us through a tricky planning and renovation process with care and attention to detail. And then they followed up with quality assurance and spotting as the project was implemented. And they did all of that with a smile and approachability that you can’t find elsewhere. Strongly recommend for anyone looking to build real quality into their project!

Fantastic team, really helpful and great communication! I had a challenging project that another architects could not solve but the team at HMO were able to redesign and get planning approved in 6 months from start. I also appreciated that the directors have been investing themselves. Thanks again, highly recommend the team! James
