Customer Question

We are interested in buying a house, the present owners advertised it as a four bedroom but they have added a log cabin downstairs which they are using as a fifth bedroom, should they have planning permission for this?

Hello. My name is Alex.
Thank you for your question.
I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Yes. Absolutely. Generally, any addition would require a proper permit and it would be important to hire an experienced local licensed property inspector to determine whether a proper permit was obtained for this log cabin that would built out.

I wish you the best of luck!
