In the past I have purchased numerous properties and added a bedroom(s) in the roof space (so the property then had a ground floor, 1st floor and roof space 3rd floor) and then rent the property out.
In order to comply with building regulations I had to ensure that all bedrooms had fire doors and that the staircases and landings/hallways had direct exit from the house direct from an external door without having to go through any other room.
I am looking to purchase a property which already has a bedroom in the roof space (3rd floor) but there are no fire doors to the bedrooms or direct exit from the property from the staircase/hallway. Is this property Ok and legal to rent out.
It obtained the relevant building regulation consent when this was built pre 1976.
