  • HMO & Multi-Lets

    Man with 4 wives

    There is a programme on daytime TV that follows the life of a man with 4 wives. Its based in the US, but it seems that their laws are similar to ours that he can only be legally married to one wife.

    In the UK would this arrangement constitute an HMO requiring mandatory licencing?

    Is it 1 household (married couple) plus 3 unrelated individuals or is it a group of up to 6 people living together as one household?

    Barman says to him, what's the long face for?

    The establishment is rigged so that the rich stay very rich, and the poor get poorer.

    here's the rest of that joke..  If you knew Bilston in the Black Country this would not surprise you

    Muslim men may have more than one wife - interesting to know how courts would treat that in this context - one household or four?

    Don't have to be married to be a couple - just co-habiting.

    ....however the law only talks of a 'couple' i.e. 2 - so could be read either way depending on how expensive your lawyer is compared to theirs.

    DISCLAIMER just my personal opinion - for legal advice consult a qualified professional grown-up.

    My first thought on reading the thread title was that he must get a lot of sex.

    But then I realised you said Wives not Girlfriends............

    I think that may be covered in Regulation 3 of The Licensing and Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation and Other Houses (Miscellaneous Provisions) (England) Regulations 2006:

    Person A carries out work or performs a service of an exclusively domestic nature for person B or such a member of person B’s family;

    We have a tenant that has 3 wives, in 3 different properties. I assume he is telling the truth here but would be interested to hear from people who know more. He pays his rent for property 1(I assume with some benefit top up as he works part-time), wife No's2 & 3 claim full benefits for being single mothers because UK law doesnt allow for 3 wives . I had assumed that as all parties are linked only one claim for benefits could be made, ~If he isnt 'winding me up' no wonder the country is in a mess.

    I believe there are several loopholes in the benefits system that allow individuals to take full advantage of it.
