With so much to think about and do as an HMO landlord, it isn’t surprising that
building up your business can be extremely overwhelming. If you’re struggling
to know where to start, the expert team at LEA Property Solutions have some
helpful advice so you can achieve results more quickly.

1. Build and Nurture Relationships

The first thing to prioritise as an HMO landlord is nurturing and building
professional relationships with others in your field including agents, potential
investors, tradespeople, contractors, tenants, and business partners.
By doing this, you will create a portfolio of people who can give you the
support, investment, guidance, advice, and practical help that you need to

Make sure that you put yourself in the right places at the right times to
network with relevant people and always be sure that you’re portraying
yourself and your HMO business in the best possible light.
Being transparent and honest is key, as is being always prepared with all the
information about your business just in case you meet somebody who could
prove helpful in the future.

2. Take a Long-Term Viewpoint

When you invest in HMO properties in England and build up your business, it’s imperative to always think, prioritise, and build your framework around a long-
term viewpoint. All the properties you purchase and all the decisions you make must be in linewith your long-term business plan. Make sure you’re clear about what you want to achieve, not just now, but in the months and years to come. Ask yourself where you want to be in ten years’ time. Whenever you face a difficult decision, ask yourself whether it’ll serve you a decade in the future.

3. Understand the Local Rules

Licensing requirements and rules surrounding HMOs can often be confusing
but failing to adhere to them could have serious consequences for you as a
landlord in England. Make sure you have a clear understanding of the
legislation and local regulations for HMO properties in England and ensure that
you have complied with them when setting up and renting out your rooms.

4. Create Systems That Work

All business leaders must create a system that works for them to be successful
and being systematic in your approach is equally crucial if you’re an HMO
Think ahead about each individual process you need to implement for your
business then decide which ones you must undertake yourself and which you
can delegate elsewhere.
Too many HMO landlords think they can take on everything themselves and
end up struggling to keep their heads above water.
Finding a reliable and experienced team of HMO property managers in
England is the best way forward to simplify your processes and ensure that you
have an effective and efficient system in place for finding tenants and dealing
with them in the long-term.
