So, Why Change the use of a property?

Over the last 20 years the Liverpool property market has seen some big changes, due various factors including urban regeneration and heritage-led development, demographic changes, housing market growth, Buy-to-Let growth, market demand and the student accommodation boom (amongst other things!).

During this period of rapid growth, property change of use has played a significant role. Our team of change of use builders have worked on countless projects over the past 20 years from HMO’s and residential to commercial changes, to commercial and industrial to residential.

We have experience in managing projects on behalf of investor and landlord clients so if you are looking for a reliable and experienced team of contractors, talk to us today.

Types of “Change of Use”

In the UK, there are several types of change of use for properties, each of which may require different permissions or approvals before any work starts. We always recommend you seek specialist advice before you commence with any work.

Some common types of change of use include:

Single Dwelling to House in Multiple Occupation (HMO): Changing a single-family home into a House of Multiple Occupation, which is typically rented out to multiple tenants who have their own rooms but share common areas like kitchens and bathrooms. We receive lots of enquiries each month from landlords and property investors interested in converting their property into HMO’s. Read more about HMOs here.

Residential to Commercial: Converting a residential property into a commercial space, such as a shop, office, or take away restaurant.

Commercial to Residential: Changing a commercial property into a residential dwelling, such as converting an office building into apartments or a pub into a single house or multiple flats.

Industrial to Residential: Changing an industrial property or land into residential use, such as converting a factory into loft-style apartments. This type of change of use has been popular over the last 20 years, with dis-used and dilapidated factories and warehouses turned into trendy (and expensive!) apartments.

It’s important to note that each type of change of use may be subject to different planning regulations, permissions, and considerations. Some HMO projects can take place under ‘Permitted Development’ rules, while other types of conversion projects will require planning permission.
