Find out if there is a CO (Certificate of Occupancy) for the porch. That would make it legal.

Having or not having heat is more for whether it can be counted as living space, whether it is legal or not has more to do with if the proper permits were obtained to build it, finish it or close it in. Your agent should be able to easily guide you with what you need.

If the porch was closed legally, has open and closed permits, the attorney should not have any question.
