Houses in Multiple Occupation
A licence requires to be obtained from the Local Authority if it is intended to
use a property as a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO). A house is an HMO if it
is the only or principal residence of three or more qualifying
persons from three or more families.
Where an owner of a house lives there and lets out rooms, or shares with friends,
the owner is not counted as a "qualifying person", nor are any members of their
family that live with them.
The property must also meet South Ayrshire Council's physical and management standards.
