Here’s a balanced look at an emerging trend in homeownership. Kate Saines of What Mortgage talks to IMS Property Group CEO Michelle Niziol about “houses in multiple occupation”. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it means:

For the purposes of HMOs, a household is seen as a single person, or members of the same family living in the same property.
