We had our house valued today with a view to selling in the new year. Originally the house was a 4 bed dormer with detached garage, soon after it was built (early 90s) the first owners converted the garage and joined it to the house, adding two rooms.
When we bought it there was 4 bedrooms and it was listed as such. The additional rooms being used as a study and a second sitting room. We have changed the usage now with the two rooms in the extension becoming bedrooms and an original smaller bedroom becoming my office.
The estate agent today said we could only sell it as a 4 bed as that's what it originally was. Why is this? Is it a planning thing? Can we do something to change it? For selling should we not have 5 rooms as bedrooms?
