    Overcrowding regulations apply to owner occupiers also, possible fines, sadly rarely enforced

    Of course, but as you pointed out on the other forum overcrowding regs allow for all living space to be considered so will not apply to the OP even at an occupancy of two.

    I pointed out lounge can count, and to measure it, not that it would definitely be OK.  He's replied at another place saying he's been told that can't be used as it's open plan.  Dunno if that's correct or not.

    Thanks for the replies guys, still waiting for a reply to our challenge and explanation, pinged the local councillors to try and chase it up. 

    Bottom line it seems is its possibly, indeed perhaps even likely to be correct, which is a bit of bummer!

    Would so much prefer to sell but also a, blocked process. 

    At this rate I can see it being empty for a while

    Just a quick update should anyone else search forums for similar - this has been overturned to a 2 person licence, as one household. No explanation why unfortunately, so not sure, but hey, we'll take it for sure! 
    Hi ChilliBob. We are in a similar position. 😬 What was the name of the councillor that you reached out to, and what did you include in your email? And did you just liaise with the generic prpl email address when you contested it, or did you have a specific contact?

    Hey, sorry to hear that. I'm guessing your property is also in LBBD too then? If so I'll ask my partner who she got in contact t with and I'll PM you with more details.
    Best of luck
