I recently purchased a converted barn, which has a two bedroom adjoining annex with internal access via the main house plus its own front door, kitchen and bathroom. I pay one council tax bill for the property as a whole.
If I wanted to rent it out via Airbnb, or a.n.other holiday letting company do I need permission, or to pay extra council tax etc.? I am aware of 140 day limit re: business rates and do not want to share my home with strangers for more than 140 days of the year.
A local architect firm, employed for other reasons, advises me I do not need permission to let out via Airbnb. However, I’ve since asked another planning company and they disagree. Stating planning is needed for full residential use – which I already have?!
I am very confused and do not want to speak to the council until I am clearer on the situation for fear of them doubling my council tax!
Any advice is gratefully received!
