Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

What type of tenancy do they have?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Jamie,
I am Owner/Occupier of a 6 bedroomed detached house.
My guests are solely design engineers working on temporary 6/12 month contracts with Jaguar/Land Rover which is situated just 8 miles away.
I am an ex designer myself(now retired) and use to live a similar life 0n a freelance basis.
They work long hours (12 hour days}. The total time they spend at the property averages 48hours per week maximum.
They are registered in their own locality for voting , doctors, dentists etc. They do not use me as a mailing address.
However, I have had a visit from Warwick CC and they have informed me that they consider that I am operating as an HMO.
I hope this additional information helps.
Kind regards,
Vaughan
