Residential Property & Conveyancing

Application for Certificate of Lawful Use in preparation for sale of residential home

The clients, owners of a former warehouse in central London, now used as an open plan stylish, converted apartment, required formal regularisation of a historic planning condition imposed over 20 years ago providing for a live/work use of the apartment.

Kate Jardine’s assistance was sought in applying to change the property’s use to solely residential. She advised the clients with regard to the evidence required to support an approach to the local authority, and subsequently applied for a Certificate of Lawful Existing Use providing for continuing residential use of the property.

The close links and collaboration between our Residential Conveyancing and Planning teams enabled a streamlined process for our longstanding client, delivering the service required.
