Caution- we have not had any precise the details of the change so much is speculation. The detail and the change in the law is expected April this year.
I have had numerous enquiries about what the effect is going to be from the change of the Planning Use Classes Order for HMO’s this April. My quick answer is the same to all the changes in housing law since 1988, with two exceptions, it will do little to improve the lot of HMO landlords. I suspect that in practice little will change, it is all for show to justify some Housing Ministers, existence, though a lot will depend on how rigoursly the change is enforced.
