Single Household

  • In a lettings context this is in relation to an HMO.  If three brothers share a house it is a single household as they are all related.  However, should one brother leave and an unrelated housemate take his place forming a new group of three, four etc, then it is no longer a single household.  It is now an HMO.  Just remember '2 or more and 3 or more = HMO':  two or more households and three or more tenants make an HMO
