Should I decide to sell one of my BTL’s I know that I am obliged to declare information that may affect the transaction; such as boundaries, disputes, even “significant occurrences” at the property such as murder or a suicide. Fortunately, none of these exist.
However, my question relates to building application, which may fail. I am considering applying to convert part of my frontage into a bona fide parking space, which is adjacent to some communal parking which is always oversubscribed, so this will make my tenant’s life easier.
I believe that this small area which is within the boundary of my property, may be considered by the LA as “amenity” because it breaks up the otherwise mundane landscape of pavements and parking. I suspect that this may inhibit any potential for successful application.
So, my question is, that should I fail in my application to convert, would I have to declare this failure as and when the property is subsequently sold?
