    After reading the regulations, surely the property does class as HMO.

    I'm referring to this section:
    "Was originally constructed and subsequently adapted for occupation by persons who do not constitute a single household; or

    is occupied by one or more people, each of whom -

    is a tenant or licensee if part only of the house, flat etc. or

    has a licence to occupy the dwelling as a whole but who does not pay rent or licence fee for the whole dwelling."

    This is the wording I've come across everywhere, whilst what you've quoted contains 'and', the documents I'm finding contain 'or'. Meaning we're all tenants 'part only' of the property? Or does a group contract make this point mute?

    Sorry for being a pain!

    If the landlord rented the property as a whole to you as a group and received the rent for the whole property as a single payment each month, then the property is not a HMO for CT purposes.

    Thanks for the clarification, sorry for all the questions!

    Yeah, our tenancy agreement lists all our names and a single payment value of £1646.00 for each month. :o
