You'd definately have to tell the insurers (even though the premium may not change) and the DVLA too. And I imagine the seats and seatbelts would be scrutinised during an MOT so make sure you fit them to the same standard that they are in hatchbacks (big Torx bolts through a chunky piece of metal with a fair thread in it)

I too am looking at getting a van (for ma dogs) and was thinking of gettting a 3rd seat installed. Personally i can't see it being a problem as there are vehciles on the road that have side facing seats and are road legal.

 

The only problem i can see is that you would need to find original mounting points to fix the seat belt too otherwise they would not be securely fixed.
