Easy Law Training

Do you rent to sharers? Are you SURE you are compliant with the law?

More and more properties are being converted into houses in multiple occupation - as this is more luncrative for landlords and is also what many tenants want.

But this is a heavily regulated area and landlords need to be really careful to comply with all the rules

David Smith, a solicitor and recognised expert in this area, sets out all you need to know in this important and, for HMO landlords, essential online course. 

Some clips from the recordings

The Course Notes are a book!

As you can see from this clip, David is writing a book on HMOs and the course notes (which you get with this course) are the first daft.


What is an HMO?

David starts by looking at what an HMO actually is - as you can see from this clip, there are actually FOUR different types of HMO ...  

Council Tax

The course has a lot of information about Council Tax issues - including this section where David explains the two types of Council Tax exemptions and discusses the student exemption (particularly important for student landlords).


Standards and prosecutions

This clip is from the last section of the training day when David looks at the important issue of management of HMOs and what you can do to protect yourself from prosecution.  


The Course Content includes:

  • The definition of an HMO, 
  • HMOs and planning permission,  
  • HMOs and council tax
  • What is licensable and what is not, 
  • Additional and selective licensing, 
  • Making the application,

Who should get this course?

  • Managing Agents  


Even if you don't manage HMOs, it is a good idea to know what HMO managment entails. If you DO manage HMOs, then this course is essential . 

  • Landlords  


If you rent to three or more sharers who are not family then, whether you like it or not, your property is an HMO. You are at risk of prosecution if you do not manage it properly.

  • Advisers  


An essential training course if you advise tenants or HMO landlords.

David's course notes are actually the first draft of his HMO book and so are more comprehensive that you would normally get in a course such as this.

Useful for you and your staff and to keep as a reference forever.  

  • A pdf of the powerpoint 

David refers to a power point presentation througout the workshop.  

This is provided also in pdf format so you can print it out and have it open in front of you while watching the video training.
