I am letting out a property (3 bed-semi), to 5 tenants unrelated to each other.

As I maybe breaking the new HMO regulations…Could I put them on one single AST?

Many Thanks

Single AST would not change anything.

If you are referring to licensing

Roughly;

People 5 or more,
+
Floors 3 or more,
+
Households 2 or more.
=
Licence

(your local authority can impose additional conditions)

i was told 5 or more lettable rooms, not sure if this also covers 5 people in 3 bed + 3 storey house or not? what they were saying was that even if the property had 5 bedrooms but was let to only 3 people we would still require a licence. this is in newcastle so it will be different elsewhere.

The following thread is helpful in defining "household"

The simple answer to your question. Well I reckon if it was an A4 size document and the base person had size 8 feet then you could get at least five trained acrobats on an AST :)

There a restriction to the amount of tenants that can have a legal liability on an AST, I cant remember if its 4 or 5.

Think you are right Energise but I guess you too failed to find the authorative source ........
