Is the listed flat too small?

Reply to the comment left by Richard P at 11/05/2021 - 15:25
I couldn't agree more choice should be for the individual. Offering a property like this to someone who wants to ave like crazy to get themselves on the property ladder is a great option for them. But the Gov are creating a stigma by introducing min room sizes.
Min room/flat sizes should be scrapped; rent control idea needs to be put in the bin and national minimum wage is no good for anyone either! We need to create jobs not have barriers for entry.... Read More

Is the listed flat too small?

This would be entirely legal to let yes!

The exception to the rule might be London where space/living conditions seem to be lower.... Read More

Land Transaction Tax - Welsh Holiday Let?

That’s for your input Jerry.

Have you heard of cases where this kind of appeal has been successful? I guess it simply comes down to the local councils position on the matter.

I may have to consider completing the works before I own the property which I think could be achievable if I let them get the summer earnings out the way first.

Do you know if I could register for business rates immediately or would I have to operate with council tax for a year or so first?... Read More
