Hi, I am planning to build an outbuilding in my backyard for short-let/Airbnb. My property is a semi-detached bungalow in London.
The backyard is about 80sqm in total. The plan is to build a summerhouse/annexe with 30sqm floor area. It will be separated from the main house and can be independently accessible from the backyard fence gate.
I researched a bit online. It seems there are often these issues coming with extra sleeping accommodation in the garden.
1. extra council tax charges on the outbuilding
2.planning permission needed when it was considered as a permanent sleeping accommodation
In order to avoid the issues, I am planning not to install a kitchen in it. So it will just be the toilet, sink, bathtub, possibly sauna.
Also, for the bed, I will set up a Murphy bed instead of a standard one. So it can be put up when there was no guest and used only as my office/workshop.
Will this allow me to pass the need for planning permission, extra council charge?
Will I be able to legally advertise online for short let?
