Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Not sure why your Solicitor does not know, but it is common legal knowledge following case law, that using a property as a holiday let is classed as a business when it comes to restrictive covenants. The Courts look at the planned use of the property- and in this regard, a private residence is entitled to be the registered office of a Management Company.
You do therefore need to approach the Management Company, requesting consent,to use the property partially as a holiday let. I wouldn't advise that you proceed to exchange of Contracts without their written consent.
I hope this assists you and sets out the legal position.
Can I assist you any further?
