Yes, I did obtain planning permission to convert it into two flats. I have not reconverted it back, as this would necessitate spending tens of thousands of pounds in reconversion costs to satisfy Building Regulations.
Hi again, AJ,
I'm afraid this sentence in your reply is unclear:
'As it stands after 10 years if they would not be able to take action anyway for the breach of planning permission.' Please clarify, as the word 'if' makes it unclear.
Are you saying the only way I can avoid the vacancy surcharge is to have it reregistered under the 1990 Town and Country Planning Act?
