English term or phrase:What is a converted flat ?
THE TERM IS USED IN AN ARTICLE THAT RERFERS TO ACCOMODATION IN BRITAIN. IN THE ARTICLE DOES NOT APPEAR ANY KIND OF EXPLANATION ABOUT THIS TERM.THAT IS WHY I WANT IT TO KNOW IT IN ENGLISH, BECAUSE I HAVE LOOKED UP FOR THE TERM IN THE DICTIONARY AND I HAVE NOT FOUND IT.
Explanation: This is a commonly used expression though it is not good logical English, you might think a converted flat was a flat which has been converted into something else. But this is what it means.
