Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Have you had any informal chat with your Council's planning department?
Thank you. No didn't have a chat with council's palnning department. . What is the best way forward? We are considering to apply for a planning permission. We have a semi 3-bed with a big garden aside. My husband can do an application form ( he was trained as an architect...) The middle of the house is already a 1 bed semi. The palnning is perfect for this.
We think to apply for extension aside as a 3 bed semi. Shall we apply for a separation of 2 properties at the same time? Thanks. Tanya
Thanks for your reply.
You are best to apply for permission for everything you want doing, at the same time. I would however suggest that you have an informal chat with the planning department first, to see if they have any issues in principle, before you waste any money on a formal application.
Please note that if you do have a Mortgage, you would need to obtain your Lender's consent before the conversion commenced.
As and when permission is obtained, if you were wishing to keep 1 of the 2 properties and sell the other, this wouldn't cause too much trouble for your Conveyancing Solicitor- you would merely have to prepare a suitable scaled Plan showing the extent of the land to be sold.
I hope this helps but please let me now if you require any further clarification.
