New HMO Restrictions Introduced In Barnet

New planning controls restricting the number of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) have been introduced in the London Borough of Barnet. Last month Barnet Council implemented a borough wide HMO Article 4 Direction to restrict new house and flat shares and bedsits. This means planning permission will be required to convert a single family house (use class C3) to an HMO occupied by three or more people who are not all related and share facilities.Prior to this, landlords only needed planning permission to change a family property into a HMO if it was occupied by more than six people.
