HMO Floor Plans

Posted by Helen Hardcastle on Thursday, January 16, 2014 Under: Floor Plans
A new page has been added to the HH CAD Plans website, giving details of the service offered to landlords who need an HMO (Houses in Multiple Occupation) license.
As part of their application landlords are required to submit a floor plan which shows all the fire exits, all fire detection equipment, fire extinguishers and windows. Room dimensions are also needed. The amount of detail required seems to vary from one local authority to another. Some also want details of white goods in the kitchen. 
Most local authorities say that a simple line drawing is adequate, but I would recommend that a full survey and detailed plan is safer and much more likely to be accepted as an accurate plan. A CAD plan is, as always, the best way to do this, ensuring that all rooms are shown correctly and showing all the necessary detail in a clearly presented electronic format.
