Does converting a house into flats require planning permission?
Therefore; yes, converting a house into flats will not only require full planning permission but also some other considerations.
Your next consideration after granted planning permission is a Building Regulation Approval from Building Control, which requires plans as well.
In some cases, and if your property is listed, a Listed Building Consent will be required and obligatory. It’s your hired architect or firm’s job to make all of that come into alignment.
Converting your house into flats is worthwhile, whether you’re willing to rent them, sell them, or sell one and retain the others. But you’ll have to make sure you go to the right planning firm to do the job properly.
