I have a question regarding what would be acceptable information for a planning department to give a Certificate of Lawfulness for a property I am potentially looking to purchase.
Property in question is the heart of one of the areas where 80-90% of all properties are of class 4 use. As many of you are aware since March 8 2012 there has been a change in the rules relating to HMO’S and planning.
So now any property which didn’t already have C4 use will not be able to obtain it in the Nottingham City area, Thus causing these properties to lose a large percentage of there potential value and prove extremely hard to sell as families rarely want to live in these areas that are dominated by students.
I am currently looking at a property that doesn’t have a HMO license, but has clearly been used as one. Evidence being fire doors on all rooms, which i know isn’t enough evidence to obtain the COL. Also a large bundle of letters addressed not to the Property owner but a number 5+ of individuals, who resided at the address prior to its sale.
It is extremely hard to obtain information on council tax as it is not readily available due to data protection.
I would appreciate any advice on this matter
