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

We support our Franchise Partners throughout their journey on all things compliance, covering licensing as well as the entire planning application process. Staying abreast of the broader policy and legislative contexts across England is key for us: we provide one-to-one technical support, group training and network events to help Partners grow their property investment knowledge and understanding in the ever-changing world of regulation and sustainability. We take pride in raising housing standards through creating high quality and affordable accommodation, with Platinum helping Franchise Partners navigate these legislative frameworks for over a decade. It’s safe to say we have a wealth of expertise and experience across the Team and network to share!
