Hi geeks i had applied to my council for a home salon, i have just had a phone call to let me know i am getting a visit tomorrow from my housing officer.

He had a couple of questions , but i answered that over the phone.

I am now worrying myself about this, i have my msds, and insurance in place.

I have not got the room set up as im still sorting it out in there and its not ready, any ideas as to what he may want to see?

It's probably just to check for access and that there won't be parking problems. Try not to worry.

it is usually to see if there will be parking or access issues for your neighbours, dont worry too much,

if you can show that you will use the room for other things ie an office/spare bedroom you will not need a licence!just a thought x

Don't under estimate I had to get a sink put in, emergency lighting and pay £300 a year. If you do permanent make up, derma roller, or electrolysis it is harder to obtain.

Very council have different regulations, I didn't need a sink, my bathroom is opposite, and I do electrolysis and never got any problems. Don't worry they will advise you if you need any of the above. Don't be put off I thought that it wasn't that bad,

Hi there, I would be interested to know how your visit went. I have just got my licence through my council but they did not want to visit, but could do at any time. I had some really good advise from the woman I spoke to and she covered everything they could possibly want to know or see. Please let us know how it went, I hope all was OK!

Hi geeks, well i had my visit and to be honest it wasnt worth him coming out!

He asked me the same two questions again and i gave him the same answer, he said he cant see a problem with it, but he has to wait for the planning department to get back to him,and the roads department.

He did say that its an old system and this is why its taking so long but i can expect an answer in a few days time.

He never asked to see my insurance or msds, or my certificates, even my business mentor was here when came out and she said the visit was pointless, but he was told to come out and check to see if there would be parking issues which there isnt.

Also as i am using my spare bedroom for nails, it will also still be used as a bedroom as i am putting a sofa bed in there.
