  • caravan being used in garden as an extra room

    My niece is renting out her back bedroom to myself and husband. we are doing this under the rent room scheme. And we have a caravan that we would like to put in her garden for storage. Would we be able to use this during the day as a 'escape'. Just to give us privacy. It will not be plumbed in it will have electrics. My husband will need to use it for study and i would like to have our own space in the evenings.

    If we are still sleeping, showering and using her facilities is this allowed or would she need permission?

      I believe planning permission would be required - but the local council will confirm.

        I am not sure why I found this post interesting enough to research but a google search turned up this page

        http://www.selfbuildtimberframe.com/...anning-details

        with reference to an act of Parliament as follows: -

        The law regarding planning permission for mobile homes in the garden is stated in the 'Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960'in the 'First Schedule Cases where a Caravan Site Licence is not required' point 1 'Use within curtilage of a dwellinghouse' it states...

        1. Use within curtilage of a dwellinghouse
        A site licence shall not be required for the use of land as a caravan site if the use is incidental to the enjoyment as such of a dwellinghouse within the curtilage of which the land is situated.
        [I]The opinions I give are simply my opinions and interpretations of what I have learnt, in numerous years as a property professional, I would not rely upon them without consulting with a paid advisor and providing them with all the relevant facts[I]

            I'm surprised that you are even asking, it's obviously some kind of scam.

          • Burglary Damage - Who Pays?
            Pb21
            Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this....

            Following on from my last post, had the tenant not informed the police and landlord at the time, they would have failed in their duty. I therefore would expect the tenant to foot the bill at the end of the tenancy or sooner.

As it was not a suitable property for my Disability. I would have to make some major changes that would devalue my property like installing...

            Criminal damage not connected with the tenant occurred during the tenancy and was reported as such at the time. It is not the case that the tenant caused or was responsible for loss of value beyond wear and tear.

            I'm just stating my view which appears to be backed up from sources other...

            If the tenancy ended and the lock was broken, it would be a loss in value beyond fair wear and tear and I'd expect the tenant to compensate the landlord for it.
            Same as any other damage.

            What's different about it during the tenancy?

            Yes, they have a duty of care but not the same responsibilities as a lease/freeholder.

            If I was the tenant, I'd refuse to pay. This is assuming I hadn't been grossly negligent and had reported the damage at the earliest opportunity to both the police and the landlord. I would expect a TDS...
