Can I advertise attic 'store' room as bedroom?

I have a loft conversion with bedroom, bathroom and other room detailed as 'store' on the plans. This room has a window and we use as a child's bedroom. The loft conversion has all been approved by building control, but they specified that the room be detailed as 'store' on the plans due to width of stairs/fire regs. Can I advertise the store as a bedroom when selling? Thanks!

  • Hey Cat, It’s really up to your agent to assess but as you are aware of it, it will only be fair to inform them that it is a store. Good luck :-) Jeff.

  • If it does not meet building control approval for a habitable room then you cannot call it a bedroom.

  • If the building control department insisted/specified that it be called a store, I'd recommend you describe it this way when selling. It's perfectly acceptable to describe it as "store, currently used as a (child's) bedroom" - insert or delete 'child' as appropriate, depending on how easy it is for an adult to access.
