Definition of Non-domestic Premises
The identification of all commercial properties as "non-domestic" and therefore subject to the Regulations is straightforward. However, the Regulations also apply to landlords of some residential properties and/or parts of residential properties including:
- single dwellings with bedsits - the common parts for access and circulation (e.g. entrance lobby & staircase)
- house converted into flats occupied by more than one family - common parts for access, circulation and storage
- block of flats - occupied by more than one family - all common parts
- holiday homes used substantially or exclusively as a business
This list is not exhaustive. For further details download the Residential Classification Chart.
