A bedsit is a form of accommodation made up of a single unit in a property with shared facilities. A bedsit can be part of a HMO if the property has 3 or more tenants who make up more than one household. The landlord will have additional responsibilities including making sure the rooms are a certain size if the property is classed as a HMO. In this case, depending on where the property is located the landlord might need a licence from the local council.
