Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

We are about to buy a 3-bedroom house plus a loft conversion completed over 16 years ago with no regulations. The owners did not do the loft conversion, and we think they are struggling to find any signed off building regulation documents. It has a proper staircase, door and two windows.
The mortgage is fine and has classed it as 3 bed plus a loft conversion, but my question is even if it is not signed off as a bedroom, can it still use it as a bedroom? My thoughts are, it’s our house we can use it how we want?
What about insurance purposes? We will still only be using 3 rooms as bedrooms and the box room downstairs as an office.
