Simon delves into the topic of Houses of Multiple Occupation (HMOs) and highlights the five big mistakes people often make when dealing with HMO properties. He demystifies HMOs and provide valuable insights on how to avoid costly errors as well as emphasising that HMOs can be a lucrative investment strategy, capable of replacing income in a relatively short period. By debunking common misconceptions, such as the assumption that HMOs are only for experienced investors or that they require substantial upfront capital, Simon encourages listeners to explore the potential of HMO properties. 


  • There are various types of tenants for HMO properties, including young professionals, working individuals, and those on benefits. Understanding this can help in maximising the potential of HMO investments.
  • While HMOs are considered more advanced, beginners can also venture into this strategy with proper knowledge and guidance. It's essential to focus on the potential profitability rather than solely on experience.
  • Contrary to popular belief, substantial personal funds are not always necessary for HMO investments. Options like private loans, joint ventures, rent to rent, and purchase options can be utilised to finance HMO projects effectively.
  • Instead of competing on price, focusing on providing high-end, co-living HMO properties can attract better tenants, higher rents, and longer tenancies. This approach can lead to increased profitability and reduced void periods.
  •  Many individuals hold back from investing in HMOs due to lack of knowledge or misconceptions. By gaining the necessary training and understanding the strategies involved, one can unlock the potential of HMO investments and achieve significant financial gains.


"HMOs, Houses of Multiple Occupation, is probably one of the fastest strategies for you to replace your income."

"I think a lot of people are put off doing HMOs because they don't really understand them."

"The only way you should do that, in my opinion, which is what many of my students do, is they take an HMO, they rent it to a charity who specialises in supporting people who have special needs."

"I wouldn't say they're easy, because easy suggests there's no effort. There's definitely time and effort required."
