Planning/Building Regulations

    Hi all,

    I am currently looking at purchasing a 4 bedroom house. Upon completion of sale, I want to erect a <40 sq.m. extension to the rear of the property.

    I am then looking to rent the rooms out on an individual basis with all the tenants sharing the communal kitchen, dining, washing and living room space.

    What are the planning/building regulations surrounding same? I know that if each unit is to be self-contained I will need planning permission and to comply with minimum housing standards for rental accommodation. However, this will be more so shared living accommodation/co-living space and will not fetch as high a rent as a self-contained unit would.

    I appreciate all inputs and thanks in advance!
