Does My HMO Property Need To Include A Communal Lounge?

The simple answer is yes.

Generally, the properties let through Student Haus are let to a group of student tenants that come as friends. Students have a lot of time on their hands which they tend to spend at home and they want a communal space where they can spend time together with their friends and flatmates.

The size of the communal area itself depends on whether the lounge, kitchen and dining area are combined or separate spaces. Below are guidelines to help you decide whether your communal area is big enough for the number of tenants, you may however wish to confirm this with your local Council.
