  • Title Deeds Affecting HMO Application - Scotland

    Hello, and thank you for taking the time to help me in my query.

    We are in the process of applying for a Hosuing in Multiple Occupancy liscence for a 4 bedroom flat and another person in the building has raised an objection to the application.

    As well as some unfounded claims about noise and parking problems they cite a section of the title deeds written at the time of the complex's construction relating to the conditions. It states there that flats cannot be subdivided or contain more than one family.

    Will this deeds condition mean that our application is going to be denied? Is there any course we can take to better ensure application approval or any way the deeds can be altered to prevent them doing this?

    Their actions are based purely in spite against the previous occupants, but their point about the deeds seems to be a valid method to prevent the liscence being granted meaning we would be unable to live in the building.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Sorry - I cannot help here, as Scottish law will apply
    This is based on my experience as a conveyancing solicitor in England, but I do not accept liability for information I give in this forum

      Well hopefully someone else can. Although reading through the forums, you appear to be the only person helping people Justin!

        That is whgy I felt it appropriate to explain why I cannot help in this case - perhaps there is a Scottish equivalent of this forum?
