I have a property that I inherited from my late husband that has been divided into 8 self contained flats.
Although they don’t have any shared facilities (in the normal HMO way) the current legislation says that buildings converted into self contained flats ARE HMOs UNLESS they comply with 1991 Building Regulations or if they don’t, that they’re now brought up to those regulations.
My challenge is that I don’t want them to be HMOs because of my mortgage terms and also the licence fees for each one etc. However even after phoning over 20 surveyors and private building control people, I am struggling to find anyone who can help me to establish if they comply to the 1991 Building Regulations or not etc. I don’t want to involve the council at the moment until I’ve got my facts right.
Can anyone suggest any one who could help? I need a surveyor or Building control expert who can come and tell me what is or isn’t compliant, how to put it right and then I can apply for Regularisation.
