I have a property which consists of a three-bedroomed house with a one-bedroomed annexe. Each have separate entrances and gardens, but the utilities - water, gas and electricity, are shared. The boiler and meters are in the main house. There is one central heating system, again run from the main house. The house is let to a tenant, and I have been living in the annexe. I want to know if there is any reason I cannot let the annexe to another tenant, in view of the shared services.

An estate agent was not willing to market it, saying that if the tenant in the main house is away and something goes wrong with the utilities, the tenant in the annexe would have no control over the situation. As landlord, I have keys to both properties, so would be able to get any necessary repairs done whether the tenant was there or not.

I propose to let the annexe for a rent which would include the utilities. would this be possible?
