Tenant Evicted from Illegal Shed Home

By |Published On: 17th September 2015|

This article is an external press release originally published on the Landlord News website, which has now been migrated to the Just Landlords blog.

A tenant in Bristol living in one of Britain’s smallest homes is being evicted, after he discovered that the property is just a shed without planning permission.

Simon Rogers, 39, has rented the 198 square foot property since March, despite it having no windows and a shower he cannot fit into.

The bus driver pays £400 per month and Council Tax on the home, but it has now emerged that the shed has no legal status.

The landlord has listed the “smartly-presented”1 studio for sale with agents for £30,000.

Rogers says: “I don’t know what my next step will be.”1

Bristol City Council is investigating.
