Permitted development office to residential & permitted development rights

Advice on permitted development for office to residential & permitted development rights.

Several years ago in October of 2015, the government announced permanent changes to the General Permitted Development Order (GPDO). This was done in an effort to help boost the housing supply, essentially freeing business owners to convert office properties into homes for sale and rent.

While the changes have been great for business, it’s still advised for property owners seeking to take advantage of the changes to permitted development rights for office to residential to be careful.
