Landlords Alliance – Emergency Euro Elections Statement21:09 PM, 21st May 2019

Im new to the BTL business and I’ve found a back to Back terrace with a loft conversion at a very good price.
I’m pretty certain the loft conversion doesn’t meet the regs as you have to come up more of a ladder than stairs. The room itself has 2 velux windows in and is done to a very high standard.
Can I still rent this as a 2 bed house with the loft conversion just optional for them to use? Or because this is now a 3 storey house do I run into more problems?
I’m currently working on getting a builder out to view the property to consider the cost of maybe the correct stairs in to conform to the building regs. But the more I read online the more I seem to be getting confused about whether it is rentable, even just as a 2 bed?
Any advice would be appreciated.
