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.
