This property came with planning permission for a 7 room HMO.
After agreeing to take the deal, we could see that more value can be added STPA of course, with at least 1 extra room and possibly 2 depending on approval and budget.
The planning came with 7 rooms with ensuites. This however would require the water mains to be upgraded as the flow rate is not sufficient for 7 showers. There was also a potential requirement for an upgrade to the electrics for 7 shower heater/ pumps as running these from 1 domestic supply would be too much.
To reduce the expense due to the above considerations, we decided it will have 3 shared bathrooms instead, with 1 on the ground floor and 2 on the middle floor.
