I am a solicitor.

Yes, there will be implications. You need to check if your flat is leasehold and if so, whether your lease includes any restrictions on carrying on business from the property. You also need to check whether any local council planning permissions need to be made. You also need to check if the buildings insurance would cover this use.

May I help further?
