Change of use may hold the key to your next home

Regulations for the change of use from commercial to residential properties may soon be relaxing as part of the government’s plan to solve the national housing shortage by making use of vacant or derelict buildings. By amending planning permission regulations for such properties, the government will increase housing opportunities in cities across the UK, regenerate districts with a high number of run-down buildings and encourage economic growth in said areas.

Property search consultant Toby Ridge, from the Garrington East team, has recently written an interesting article in which he explains the effects that these proposed alterations to the change of use regulations could have on both the housing market and economy as the UK government is planning for growth.

This information may be of particular interest to owners of unused commercial properties or those struggling to find suitable housing within a specific area and would like to discover alternative options.
