    A broker is predicting a spike in landlords rushing to re-finance HMOs before new licensing rules come into effect on 1st October 2018:

    Andrew Turner, chief executive at Commercial Trust, said: “More landlords will be required to bring their HMO properties up to local authority licensing standards.

    “In scenarios where perhaps one bedroom in the property fails to meet minimum licensing standards, there could be future implications, if the landlord wants to remortgage the property.

    “Investors looking to remortgage may find that a lender will only base rental stress calculations on rental income from the bedrooms that do meet local licensing rules. That could make obtaining the required level of financing a lot tougher."
