Coal house conversion to utility

Coal house conversion to utility

Changed a coal house to a utility room nearly 35 years ago. Originally the coal house was only connected to the house by an arched single brick wall. So the access was open to weather. I roofed the coal house, added 2 doors and did some brickwork. Very little. I knocked down 2 internal walls. Would I have required any permissions at that time and would I need them now? Still single brick. Looking to sell.
Cheers.
George

    George.

    It is unlikley this would of required planning permission assuming the heights of the roof met the permitted development regulations and you do not live in a listed building, conservation area or you property is part of a flat or apartment.

    This would of required a building warrant.

    So would this have any affect on the sale of my property? A retrospective building warrant for example?

    George.

    You will probably find either the home report or the solicitor will pick this up.

    An agreement would have to be reached between you and a purchaser on the status of the conversion.

    You could apply for a warrant in retrospect however it is unlikely from your description that it would get passed in its current state.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission.
