    The building is a purpose built block of flats.
    It might not have been originally, but it is now.

    Anyway, the OP is clearly determined to go ahead.
    The risk is very small, but worth while pointing out; which we have done.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      How can it be a "not originally purpose built but now is purpose built"? That doesn't make sense - unless you totally demolished it and rebuilt it as flats (in which case what was demolished doesn't count). A renovation and conversion into flats doesn't make it "purpose built", it's a conversion.

      (and I'm now home from Amsterdam so this is just my usual stupidity)

        I don't disagree, but by my reading of the legislation (and as counter-intuitive as it would seem) I would still be classified as a Resident Landlord. If you have a different view then tell me which clause of section 10 of Schedule 1 I would not satisfy...

          As emwithme has pointed out, it is - by definition - not a purpose-built block of flats: it is a shop with accommodation above it, the latter of which was converted into 2 flats ~50 years ago.

            BTW regarding turning off heating & electricy. Landlords can & have got large fines & criminal convictions for such actions. It's harassment, illegal! Don't- if only to avoid the judge being even more sympathetic to your tenant & allowing them to stay even longer.
            I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

              Fair enough.

              BTW, in a previous post you mentioned that hotel room occupation is by licence not tenancy - any idea where I can find out more about this licence classification and especially why letting very short term would not qualify as a licence?

              Thanks,
