Loft conversion has no permission
Before we purchased our house, the previous owners had carried out a loft conversion. This did not involve any changes to the roof (a velux window was installed to the rear). They built in storage under the eaves, a staircase up to the attic and floored the attic. The head height on the staircase is very low.
They did not obtain planning permission or a building warrant. We are now trying to sell our house and a potential purchaser has raised this as an issue. Is the any way we can obtain a letter of comfort from the Council?
Thanks for your help.
