Switching residential mortgage to HMO mortgage

Recommended Posts


I currently live in my property on a residential mortgage. I have just bought a new house with my partner and plan to switch my current residential mortgage onto a HMO mortgage so I can go on a residential mortgage with my partner.

It would be 4 bed HMO and I have used these rooms to have lodgers in.

Would this be fairly straightforward to do? Are there any mortgage advisors people recommend for the above and estimated costs?

The main issue you will have is complying with the regulations of HMO properties - fire doors, escape routes, interlinked smokes, thumb locks on internal exit doors ect. The HMO lending pool is smaller than normal and it's also more of a pain in the arse. You could go simple and just get a nice family in. Just depends what your motivation is ? If it's cash flow - go HMO.
