I am currently being offered a nice little cottage to live in with my partner. We are in constant communication with the landlady regarding this place as at the moment is certified as a 'Holiday let only'. Obviously because we wish to live their permanently it needs to be changed to a 'Residential' certification.
The landlady has spoken to someone in a planning consultancy (she went to them so that they could aid her in filling out a planning application) but he rejected her flat, saying the council would NEVER approve of changing the status of the cottage.
Does anyone know if he can be correct or if this has happened before to anyone and what were the reasons for the rejection.
Is there anything that can be done to get the status of the cottage changed?
All advice is greatly appreciated.
