25 Essex Road, South Woodford where an application for change of use to a HMO has been submitted - Credit: Google

What: This application sought to prove that this property was in lawful use as a House of Multiple Occupation (HMO) before a rule change prohibited such use.

Where: 25 Essex Road, South Woodford, E18 1JS

When: Application decided - May 19

Reference: 0802/22

Further information: As of December 2019, a change to building regulations removed the right for a dwelling of this nature to be converted into a HMO.

Therefore, the applicant had to prove - on the balance of probabilities - that this property was in use as a HMO before the above deadline. 

According to the council, "sufficient evidence" was submitted to demonstrate this.
