I looked everywhere on the site but couldn’t find the answer to this question, hope you can help: I’m living in my own house and will have three lodgers who share the kitchen, etc., with me. What am I required to do in terms of gas, electricity certificates, environmental certificates, deposits, fire alarms, etc? Are there any other requirements, such as documents I have to show them about deposit arrangements? If these aren’t required, would you recommend that I do them anyway?
I guess my house will be an HMO as I will have three lodgers, but I guess that I do not need a license as it’s less than 5 total (I’m in Hackney, London).
