Summary

Across the UK, more and more people are choosing to live in houses of multiple occupation - a house where tenants have their own private bedrooms and share the other facilities communally. The market is growing, and so, too, are the demands of tenants. If you are a property investor or landlord, you might be wondering how to develop an HMO so that it is profitable, well managed, and well maintained.

This book is a handy guide to help you quickly and efficiently learn some tricks of the trade and apply them in your chosen HMO location. All the tips in the book have been implemented, tested, and refined through repeated processes. They will enable you to create a well-managed, profitable, professional HMO and free up your time in no time!

Using the knowledge in this book, you will be able to create a systemized business that runs even when you're not there. This book is focused on the professional HMO market, but many of the tips can easily be applied to other sectors of the market, such as LHA (local housing allowance) and student HMOs.

The book is split into five sections: Find It, Fund It, Finish It, Fill It, and Future-Proof It. Each section contains tips large and small - some short and sweet and some that are more in-depth. All of the advice will be useful if you are developing for the professional HMO market and could save you thousands of pounds and hours of worry, giving you time, money, and freedom as a result.
