Tribunal Decision on Undersized HMO

The First Tier Tribunal has confirmed Leeds City Council's decision to refuse to grant a HMO licence on the basis that the property is not sufficiently sized. The property is a four storey back-to-back consisting of a combined kitchen, living room and dining room in the basement, and two bedrooms on the ground floor, first floor and second floor. Following the Council's decision to refuse a HMO application for 6 persons, the Tribunal agreed that "it is inconceivable that 6 persons could adequately, reasonably and safely live in a property of this size and it cannot be reconfigured as to make it suitable".
