Subject: HMO House Management Rules


My team add these to our sign-in pack and make sure every tenant sign's the document to confirm they have understood our rules.

Our fire safety procedures are extremely stringent and adding clauses throughout various documents in our sign-in pack re-iterates the importance of fire safety in our HMOs.

The House Rules includes clauses such 'Fire doors are to be kept closed, no exception. No furniture, bicycles, rubbish etc. may be left in the hall, stairs or landing as they are a fire hazard'


'Due to the fire risk, stove-top chip pans or fat fryers, candles, portable gas and paraffin heaters, petrol, solvents and other flammable liquids are strictly prohibited and if found will be removed without liability to the landlord or his agent for the loss of such. About half of the fires in shared houses are caused by chip pans and most of the rest of fires are caused by the careless use of cigarettes.'

All other relevant rules like No Smoking, Bin Disposal etc. should also be clearly outlined, explained and added to your document.

All our rules are also clearly displayed on our HMO notice board as you come into the house.

HMO management can get a bit of bad rep but we find that if people are made to sign something, it seems to stick in heads more.
Thanks and have a great day,
