One of my next jobs on the old Council house is to paint the outside white to give it that clean look.
However I have noticed that all four houses are cream coloured which I thought was strange considering they are all private.
Now I am wondering if there is some rule saying they can only be painted cream.

How could I find out if there is any ruling ?

It is unusual for Councils to put any restricting covenants on the original right to buy sale other than the usual preemption period. I have only seen this on private estates keeping frontages uniform and banning trade vehicle parking. Is it possible that the other three properties are still owned by the Council? They usually use a pot of paint for four houses. Just check with the planning department that it is not a conservation area (unlikely) as this is the only control that might stipulate render colours.

Not the question you are asking but white will look dirty much quicker than "yellow". Of course you might like your house to stick out a bit more than the rest.

One of the reasons I was going to paint it white is that I still have 25lts of Sandtex in the garage and it needs using
