Im looking for the general procedure used when one would be knocking two houses together to make one big house.
If the information could be tailored to the UK or specifically Scotland it could be a big help.
An end terrace and the terrace next door has come up for sale, now I dont want to buy them and find that this can’t be done, but I dont want permission to take too long.
The properties are catergory C listed buildings, although reading the listing, no details have been taken for the interiors at all.
I phoned Fife council’s planning and building standards dept. and had the pleasure of speaking to their biggest muppet. He couldn’t tell me much at all, except that I should acquire listed building consent.
What I am really interested in is, how can I get someone from the council to, in writing, state that I can create an adjoing door between the properties and register the two as one for council tax purposes?
Finally I would like to know who to talk to (the muppet at council didnt know this) to find out if I need to have one electric and gas meter removed. And how I register the dwelling as just one address.
If anyone has any experience at all it will be most greatly appreciated.
