Remove the requirement to change use of property from C3 to C4.

From April 2010, anyone with a house which they wished to let to more than 3 unrelated people, had to change their planning from C3 to C4. What a way to kill the buy to let housing market!! Personally, its made moving to Leeds a nightmare as i want to share with friends and i'm sure that the same issue occurs all over the country! As a landlady myself, i'm reluctant to let to families, because i lose my right to lend to more than three unrelate people!

Why is this idea important?
