  • Loft conversion building regs
    by Handy21
    Hi guys this might have already been covered before but I’m currently purchasing a 3 bed house and near completion our solicitor has managed to find out they don’t have building regs for the 3rd bedroom (loft conversion). My question is can I let this as a 3 bedroom or is it legally only a 2 bedroom,...

    Ah.

    They won't agree the increase, so it's more of a point being made....

  • Increasing rent
    by Berlingogirl
    Tenancy start date May 2020 in England. 6 month initial AST.
    My tenancy agreement says
    “The landlord may increase the rent after the first 52 weeks of the tenancy…..”
    Is there a specific form I should use?...

    by Berlingogirl
    Thanks again. I think I’ll have to just write to them informing them of the increase. They’re under s21 and s8 for rent arrears. They decided to deduct from the rent , the cost of a repair bill to which I did not agree....

    Unless the seller did their own conversion, any builder would have been aware of building regulation requirements, and so the seller would have been aware of the issue.
    I'd guess that they either very naively thought no one would notice (unlikely) or hoped you'd be so far into the process that...

    by Handy21
    Yes I was thinking they’ve left it so late on in the process in the hopes that when I found out I’d not bother backing out, the estate agents are trying to convince me that it would be fine to let out as a 3 bedroom but I have contacted other letting agents that have said it wouldn’t be allowed...

    Unless this place is unbelievably great otherwise, I wouldn't go ahead.
    The seller should have sorted that out, or at very least brought it to your attention at the start of the process.

    And what else haven't they told you?...

    Section 8 notices don't expire, but some of the grounds are implicitly time based,
    For example, you might find it tricky now getting possession for anti-social behaviour in January 2021.
