    Newbie alert, so any advice gratefully received.

    I've been renovating a property conversion from offices to three x one bedroom flats. Two of the flats are now ready for tenants, but funds have run very low on finishing the third, which still needs a bathroom and kitchen fitted. I have...

    So, have you not complied with the building regs on such things as thermal insulation, acoustic insulation, sound test, fire escapes, fire protection and detection, etc, etc? You could be in for a very large bill to complete your conversion! I think you have been badly advised. Failure to meet the building...

    You're right I probably am getting mixed up

    We were told we didn't need building control permission, it was a planning change of use and no structural alterations have taken place.

    Just had a conversation with the local planning department who have advised we can...

    Sounds like you are confusing two different departments, Planning and Building Control.

    I wasn't aware of that regarding the council tax, I thought it would make the flat more appealing with less bills to pay, but thank you for your advice, I'll arrange it the proper way.

    Do you mean extra conditions detailed when the application was granted? There weren't any in our case....

    I don't think you have discretion on who pays the council tax. If they are self contained flats and let in their entirety, the tenant pays. In fact, tenants would be advised that they probably have a rogue landlord if the property should be registered for individual council tax, but is not.

  • Leaseholder Suspected of Contravening Building Regs & Planning Laws - Advice please
    Free Holder
    I am one of three joint freeholders who make up the Landlord of the block of flats and the individual flat in question. I have very compelling reasons to believe that one of our Tenants has carried out one or more projects without satisfying the law with regard to building regs and the same with planning...

    You are free to believe anything. The important part of your statement is 'subject to all the leases'.

    If you believe you have a right to view the file then contact Building Control. State who you are, provide them formal proof and,make an appointment to view the file....

  • Juliet Balcony
    Letmein
    Hi,

    Looking into a loft conversion and would like a Juliet Balcony on the side elevation of the house. As this is a corner plot this side overlooks the main through road on the estate.

    Is this likely to be an issue, I don't believe its a permitted development and its not on...
