Real Insights - Property Update

Editor's Note

Stephen Hughes - Mishcon de Reya

Welcome to the May edition of our Real Insights newsletter. In this issue, we explore yesterday's proposals for private rented sector reforms, and examine a recent DLUHC consultation on the creation of an additional use class for short term lets. We also look at the recently published draft Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill, which will inevitably impact on a number of commercial property owners and occupiers.

Short term lets or short term frets?

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities ('DLUHC') has published a consultation on the creation of an additional use class "C5 – short term lets" together with permitted development ('PD') rights to provide flexibility, where there are no local issues with these uses. The new use class "C5" will be distinct from the existing use class relating to dwelling houses ("C3"). The consultation's proposed changes will not apply to hotels, hostels or bed & breakfasts.
