INVESTING IN HMO’S (House of Multiple Occupation)

Investment Opportunity at Room Rentals

Why Come To Room Rentals?

Whilst many investors are attracted to high rental returns with prospects of good capital growth, they are often unsure of the areas that provide the best rental returns whilst maximising capital growth, in addition to the fact that other personal/work, commitments and potentially lack of experience, deter them from managing their own HMO's and tenants themselves.  

At Room Rentals we are experts in the HMO market, over the last five years we have made it our business to solely deal with HMO’s, admittedly we have spilled slightly over into the studios and apartments arena purely as an alternative for those tenants taking the next step from a house share into a studio/flat. 

We have placed more than 1000 tenants in over 150 HMO’s in the Southampton, Fareham, Gosport and Portsmouth areas and have become a thriving business, growing a reputation with novice and professional landlords alike, who are looking for an agent who simply does more than the High Street chains. 

Having renovated many properties/HMO’s over the last five years, our knowledge in creating stunning HMO’s within budget have given us a great reputation not only with landlords, but the local Council who have given us such positive feedback. We create refreshing HMO’s that cater for the requirements of the tenants and set themselves apart from other HMO’s on the market. 

We know it can be very daunting ‘stepping’ into what could be a minefield of regulations and restrictions, so coming to an experienced agency can give you the confidence to ‘take that first step’ into the world of HMO’s. Here is what Southampton City Council and Fareham/Gosport HMO officers have said about us:

A Little More About Room Rentals:

Room Rentals is a family run HMO business. As investors and developers in HMO's ourselves we come equipped providing 'a total package' from the point of finding the HMO to completely updating and renovating as required to create an outstanding HMO property. We then go on to managing your investment for you - a true 'hands off' investment dealing with all aspects of management, maintenance and finding great tenants.
We have been working with the same master builder for 6 years, who have over 25 years of building experience from 'new builds' to 'refurbishments' under their belts. They complete the build to deadlines, creating stunning houses for tenants and turn your purchase into a profitable investment. 

The HMO Investment Business Model

This investment business model enables both experienced and new investors an opportunity to invest in HMO's with a 'hands on' approach to their investment but a hand’s off' approach to the day to day management of running the HMO. Once we have updated/renovated the HMO and it is ready for market, the real work has only just begun and you can 'sit back' and leave us to 'do the work'. 

So what happens?

The day you complete on the purchase of the property will be the day we commence any updating and renovation of your newly purchased HMO. It won’t be left empty waiting for ‘a builder to turn up’. Everything is scheduled within a timeframe to ensure we complete renovations promptly so we can have your HMO back on the market ready to receive tenants and generate an income.

The Step by Step Process

  1. Room Rentals will source your HMO in a "hot spot" rental area (Covering Southampton along the coast to Portsmouth).
  2. Planning, building regulations, HMO applications and licensing including adminstrative processes are managed by the team at Room Rentals so you don't have to worry about anything.
  3. Project management during the course of the build/refurbishment are managed by the Room Rentals team and deadlines are agreed within the initial project plans. Our dedicated building team have vast experience.
  4. All interior furnishings (furniture and decoration) are managed by Room Rentals.
  5. Once the HMO is completed we take over full management and selecting the best tenants, whilst our landlord enjoys a 'back seat' investment. Keeping you updated with a monthly report/meeting.

Having worked with Room Rentals for a few years now, I have been continually impressed with their professionalism, reliability and efficiency in sourcing great tenants for my portfolio of rooms. Having such effective support has enabled me to focus more on other aspects of the business, knowing that the lettings operation is in safe hands.”

Room rentals provided me with a very positive experience for my first 6 months in the UK. They are very professional and have a hands-on approach. They always try to solve every problem as soon as possible and make sure the tenants are comfortable in their homes. I am very happy to recommend Room Rentals to anyone who is looking to live in a shared house.

Hi Jane, This will be the 7th time I have moved rented accommodation and as a result I’ve dealt with lots of different letting agents and I just wanted to say that you are the most lovely and helpful letting agent I have ever come across by a mile!! Thank you!

Dear Jane

I can not tell how grateful I am for everything that you did today. I was totally disappointed of having a room before the next week, but you made it possible. I should thank you and your team a million times for everything.

Shankar TanikellerTenant

I once again thank the whole team making my stay for almost 3.5 years so smooth and easy. If I look back and count I have referred 14 colleagues of mine in 3.5 years for accommodation and all of them are very happy and thankful to you. They left for new engagements at work and to new locations - lastly it’s my time, moved to west midlands :)

Thanks again to all of you.
