Tenancy - Minimum Bedroom Sizes

    Heya - any help would be greatly appreciated on this.

    Are there any minimum sizes for bedrooms in rented accommodation? Private houses - not apartments and not social housing.

    I have been looking through the new Building Regs, the 2004 Act and the 1993 Building Regs and there seems to be no mention of it.

    I think I saw that there is a code of practice from the Dept of the Environment that single rooms need to be a min of 6.5m squared and doubles need to be a min of 10.2m squared. I don't know where I saw these figures and if they do exist whether they have any legal force??

    Could anyone clarify this? Thanks a mill in advance

    I reckon you might get a quicker answer if you post this on the Property and Accomodation forum.
