In terms of Council Tax, a HMO can be a home:
If each person living in the property has their own tenancy agreement, the owner of the property has to pay the Council Tax.
If the property has only one tenancy agreement with all the rent due and all of the tenants' names on it, the tenants have to pay the Council Tax.
Sometimes we can only decide who should pay the Council Tax for a HMO when we've seen tenancy agreements from all owners, agents and tenants.
