  • Splitting one property into two dwellings


    I am living in a rented detached house from last 12 years.This house is detached and there is another house attached at the back (I have enclosed my own drawing as an example of the house layout) which has got its own entrance from the side and separate electricity (no gas for the whole property),separate council tax but one water bill for the whole property.Now the landlord wants to separate this property into two dwellings i.e separate property at the front and the one at the back and he asked me if i want to buy the property at the front and he wants to keep the property at the back and rent it out.He also told he will put something in the legal document that i will have first preference if he wants to sell the back house in the future.Garden and front parking has to been shared not sure of this at the moment. I am interested in buying this property i.e front part but not sure of the complications in the future and any mortgage constraints.Could you please let me know if it is possible to buy this house and anything i need to consider before buying? Thank you.

    Hi Maggy one thing is there any structural faults that you can see. Anything major which may affect the chances of you getting a mortgage.
