    Change of Use - Commercial Class 1 to Short Term Commercial Visitor Accomodation

    Hello,

    An opportunity has become available whereby a vacant commercial unit has become available for sale. It has been vacant for 10 years or more. It is small - 17 sq metres (184 sq ft) - and is in a residential street in Edinburgh. It's probably big enough for a double bed and shower facilities, but this is really all people need when they want a cheap place to stay in the capital on a budget. What space standards are in place? The estate agent selling the property says it will likely be too small to meet building regulations for a studio flat, so I suppose it's only potential future usage is commercial. Airbnb usage will mean that the property needs a commercial usage anyway. Would building standards allow a property that is 17sqm for being used for this purpose? It's hard to find any information online about this, and building standards will likely take a while to reply.

    Thanks!
