HMO Development

Our main experience stems from our extensive knowledge of commercial HMO (House in Multiple Occupation) Development and management of our portfolio.

In 2006 we first started with commercial conversions and rapidly moved on to creating HMO’s, which has been our main priority and has allowed us to build an extensive portfolio through hard work and dedication.

We pride ourselves in the top-quality accommodation at affordable prices that we have been continuously providing for our client base. Some examples of our properties can be viewed below to show you the quality of our work.

Back at Westfield to check progress on the Extension work and the brickwork is immaculate, always purchase bricks from a reputable supplier as the quality of the brick really matter and seriously affects the end result.

81 Douglas Rd Planning Circumvent (Sep 2019)

Development is brilliant but when it comes to planning you have to be creative when you hit problems. ‘Obstacles are what you see when you takes your eyes of the goal’. An obstructive neighbour can cause delays when it comes to planning, so you have to work closely with the planning department and other teams contacts to brainstorm alternatives, be creative and think laterally in order to arrive at a solution that is mutually viable.

Brays Rd Sheldon Sub Floor (Sep 2019)

Who said property is passive!, no matter how passive you try and make your properties you can always be surprized at the odd occasional maintenance issue that comes up and you don’t always have the luxury of having to wait for builder or your team to help bail you out. Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands and deal with the situation.

81 Douglas Rd B27 Purchase (July 2019)

Yet another purchase and completion with finance from investors. Sometimes it is just a case of spotting a deal when you see one and it takes experience to be able to snap off the deal and seal the deal a.s.a.p. This property is opposite one of my previous HMOs and decided to make the pounce.

Arden Road Bees infestation (Jun 2019)

Who would have thought a bees nest could create such an issue with tenants. Problems like these are best dealt with promptly. These bees decided to take up residence along side the tenants and the tenants were not happy so somebody had to go…. since bees don’t pay rent… 🙂

Arden Road HMO Visit (Jun 2019)

Ever had a HMO Officer visit to check for compliance !.. Watch this to see what they scrutinise. They check all manner of things like smoke detectors, gaps in fire doors, Full Panel Alarm System, certificates you name it. Nothing to fear if you are doing everything to compliance.

Arden Road Purchase (Apr 2019)

Hi this is another one of our flagship HMO with huge garden. This was one of our earlier HMOs which we did with our own bare hands, right from scrap to completion over 9 months with no assistance. It is not until you do things for yourself that you truly understand how builder can give you the run around. Superb property which has some lovely tenants. Well worth all the grafting that my wife and I did double handed.
