Hi. I am looking into splitting a title deed of a commercial property I own.
The property consists of two detached buildings - one a pub and the other a cottage. They have previously been traded as a single unit, with the cottage originally serving as owner accommodation, then letting B&B rooms and is now set up as a cottage again.
We are looking to sell the cottage off from the pub.
The pub is listed and the cottage is classed as an ancillary building, and within the curtiledge.
The 'building' owned mortgage fee by a UK registered LLP.
The pub will need to give a right of way across the pub car park to access the parking for the cottage at the read of the property and a path between the pub and the cottage.
1. What is the procedure to separate the two and get the required easements set up in order to sell the cottage as a separate entity?
2. What time frame is involved?
3. What are the possible barriers we may face when trying to do this?
4. What is the procedure to change the cottage to residential - change of use planning?
