It was "given" to me in 2002 by my mum who owns the farm.
We have converted it ourselves with help of local builders from cowshed to house.
It looks as though I need to move away for a while for work.
That is very useful.
A couple of last questions to clarify:
Would it make any difference to the certificate of lawfulness if it was let for holiday lets or long term residential? Would it make any difference if there were periods of time that it was not used (does the cert require continuous habitation and if so what dodes that mean?) Also, the paperwork was not completed on the transfer of the property and it has been suggested that an affadavit that the property was transfered to me in 2002 would be enough for a solicitor to draw up the deeds. Would organising this now affect the cert in any way, or would it be advisable under the circumstances to wait for the 10 years to have elapsed before arranging the transfer?
