Amenities in an HMO
There needs to be an adequate number of amenities in an HMO to accommodate all occupiers. The amenities required are:
- adequate facilities for storage, preparation and cooking of food, including sinks with hot and cold water supplies
- sufficient suitably located toilets
- adequate number of suitably located baths or showers and hand-wash basins, each with satisfactory supplies of hot and cold water
By rule of thumb, one complete kitchen and bathroom is required for every 5 occupants that share the accommodation. Read further information about amenities.
