    Default HMO only or main residence? What does this bit of the housing act mean?

    I don't understand this bit - part (c). Can anyone help me out please?

    259HMOs: persons treated as occupying premises as only or main residence

    (2)A person is to be treated as so occupying a building or part of a building if it is occupied by the person—
    .......

    (c)in any other circumstances which are circumstances of a description specified for the purposes of this section in regulations made by the appropriate national authority.

    The appropriate national authority is basically Central Government and they put together the Statutory Instruments that provide additional rules/regs to compliment the Housing Act 2004. In your case the (c) you are referring to is contained in Regulation 5 of the SI373;2006 The Licensing and Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation and other houses (Miscellaneous Provisions) Regulations 2006.

    Regulation 5 of the SI describes the circumstances when migrant or seasonal workers or asylum seekers are to be treated as occupying premises as their only or main residence.
