Last year, we converted our detached double garage into an annexe. It has one bedroom, a shower room and a kitchen living area.
We have financial problems currently and therefore would like to rent it out on a 6 month basis. The garage conversion was undertaken using the permitted development rules and no formal planning was needed.
To rent it out – will we have to pay council tax on the property? Could this lead to planning issues? If the property is separate for council tax will we have to pay that if it is empty? Sorry if these questions seem basic but I can’t find any reliable information.
