Thanks for your question.
Do you own the freehold of the property or do you have a letting agreement for it?
Would the person be renting it from you for a period of time? Would you charge him for his occupation?
Do you have a mortgage on the property?
No there is no mortgage on the property
My parents are paying to stay in there at the moment as they need a home !
The property is on our farm and was granted a holiday let planning permission
We have no intention of selling
Planners have written to us to question breech of planning agreement ??
Thanks for your reply.
You have got to consult the planning permission that was granted to you to check the condition upon which you are permitted to rent it as a holiday let. Usually these types of let are for a short term only, if you let it on a longer term than stated in the permission then this will be a breach of the planning permission which the planning department would be entitled to enforce.
You should ask for clarification on the specific breach and see if you are in fact breaching it.
If there are no conditions attached to the permission for holiday letting then there is no restriction on the length of time you can let it.
