Urgent Advice needed!
I'm looking to buy a property that was initially a house but has been converted into two self-contained flats, both sharing a communal garden and entrance. I have been in touch with the local council to find out if they had planning permission to approve this conversion. They had nothing on their records. My concern is that I’m not sure if the conversion meets current regulations as the stairs on the ground flat leading to the bedrooms in the cellar look as if they have been done by non-professionals. Likewise, if not sure if there is permission to have rooms in the cellar, although houses along the road have a similar outlay, i.e. rooms in the cellar. The two flats have been reposed so I cannot ask the previous homeowner. Could you please advise me if it is wise to proceed with the flat and if my current concern is valid? Also, can you rent a flat where the bedrooms are located in the cellar? Kind regards, Rav
