Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

I am looking to buy my first flat and I can only really afford a studio in London.
However I have noticed some have the same gross internal area as some one beds and I could easily re arrange the layout to create a bedroom. If I was to convert a studio into a one bed would it be classified as a studio still?
I have noticed in some cases people are advertising one beds as studios with a separate bedroom, which seems odd to me.
I realise the London plan stipulates internal areas but does this apply if it’s not a new build? Also does it make a difference of it is a purpose built block?
I wonder if there is a clause in the lease that stipulates it is a studio even if it is converted to a one bed.
Any help would be great.
