In most cases it will be relatively straightforward to determine whether property is residential or not. However, in certain cases it will not. For example, a property may have been a public house in the past but is now bought as a residence.
Residential property is defined as:
•a building that is used or suitable for use as a dwelling, or is in the process of being constructed or adapted for such use; and
•land that is or forms part of the garden or grounds for such a building (including any building or structure on such land); or
•an interest in or right over land that subsists for the benefit of a building or land as specified above
