I have a five bedroom house which I have just made 6 bedroom with a loft conversion, making it a licenseable HMO.
It is classed as a shared house, with one tenancy agreement.
All work has building regs approval and has been passed by the fire authorities. The environmental health officer who visited initially proposed to put a prohibition notice on the loft room, one first floor bedroom and a shower room. This was a huge overreaction and with a small amount of work and a lot of protesting and involving a councillor he has now decided to ‘only’ put a Risk of Hazard Notice on my loft room. This does not require me to take any action, but is in case anyone ‘bumps their head’ on the sloping walls. I cannot appeal this. Does anyone have any idea what the consequences of this will be if I remortgage or decide to sell? A local estate agent and my solicitor both feel this is going to be a major problem.
I look forward to reading your comments.
