Thanks Samantha. We are in Scotland and we have a Feuhold. I believe this is similar to a freehold.
Our solicitor said that strictly our deeds say I’m not supposed to, but kind of echoed the ‘old fashioned’ thing and agreed that its not like I’m changing the use of the house etc, so said its fine and that it wold only become an issue if a neighbour complained, which I think is unlikely. No idea who they’d complain to anyway!
Home Insurance on the other hand has said they need to note what I’m doing, but then said they cant do it and I have to put in a whole new application sigh. The insurance broker we used is very helpful and she is now going to sort it all out for me.
All is this is so complicated already and I literally have 5 items listed. I’m a worrier though and I need to know all this is sorted though before I throw myself into listing more items.
