Planning permission may be needed if a house is to be used for multiple occupation.
If, however, the use has existed for a long time, it may be possible to obtain a certificate of lawfulness instead of planning permission.
Planning permission is not required for a house where it is used:
- by a single person or by people living together as a family
- by not more than six residents living together as a single household.
- five or more people over 3 or more stories
