Change of use : office to residential
In our recent search for new business premises, we came across an office that we feel would make an excellent conversion to residential. The solicitors advert advertises it as a ‘potential residential conversion opportunity’, but they were unwilling to help much more.
Clearly we would not wish to place an offer without guaranteeing that we would be approved for conversion. Would we need to submit full architectural plans for our proposals, or is a simplified version sufficient? In any case, can we make enquiries without even owning the property?
I have a feeling the building is class B or C listed.
