As financially lucrative as HMOs can be, they’re complicated when it comes to planning and licensing regulations. Whether your HMOs need planning permission or not comes down to a whole host of factors, including location, and our planning and licensing team is there to help you through them.

Planning classes

Certain HMOs require planning permission, while others do not. We provide the clarity and the guidance

Development rights

Development work on your HMOs may need planning permission, but we’re there to guide you through

Planning policy

Council policies on areas like parking vary from authority to authority, but we’ll tell you what’s right and what’s not

HMO licensing

Most HMOs require a license from the local authority to operate. The team will ensure you have what you need

Understandably, HMOs are tightly regulated to ensure tenant safety and limited impact on neighbour amenity. Our role in the Planning Team is threefold - we support Franchise Partners throughout the entire planning and licensing application process; we keep abreast of national, regional and local regulations to make sure you are up to date and finally we offer training to grow your property investment knowledge. I have worked with Platinum for 10 years and it is safe to say there is unlikely to be an HMO planning or licensing query we haven't already successfully dealt with!
