Property conversions made easy
If you are thinking about converting your loft to create an additional room then you will need to apply for building regulation approval. You may also need planning permission if you live in a conservation area and/or are installing a dormer window.
Things to consider:
- Does your design include a staircase that leads to an external door?
- Can you achieve enough headroom over the new stairs?
- Will you need fire detection and alarm systems?
The above guidance only applies to existing two storey houses where the new storey has a floor area of less than 50 square metres, does not create more than two habitable rooms and where the existing ridge is not raised.
