#080 PMP - Busting The 5 Myths About HMOs
Play • 18 min

This week, Simon talks about the most common myths associated with the HMO (Houses of multiple occupation) strategy, and why they might not be as true as you think.


  • There's an oversupply of HMOs and so you shouldn't do them - This is only half true. Most HMOs are very average in terms of spec. Be better and you'll definitely attract more clients.
  • They're far more work than single-let properties - It's not really a fair comparison. In many cases, the workload is actually less in terms of the returns you'll make.
  • Every property needs an HMO licence\need planning permission - Yes, there are regulations and licences to procure, but far less than you may believe.
  • You have to have lots of money to do HMOs - Arm yourself with different strategies and you can start your property journey without using a penny of your own money


'If you don't understand HMOs then you're not going to use them in your portfolio, which is a real shame'

'If you have a good HMO in a good area, you'll have no problem renting it out'

'If you're comparing like-for-like, HMOs are less work!'

'You have a moral, ethical and legal requirement to protect your tenants'
