Holiday rental registration?: Can any Digamites help me? I’m trying to register our rural property for holiday rentals but am told I need a licence of occupation. I think that to get this I have to use an architect to do a ‘project’ to photograph all exterior parts of house then list rooms and sizes.
First – can anyone recommend someone to do this?
Second – has anyone registered their rural property and how did they go about this?
Any help in this admin minefield will be appreciated!
