Loft Conversion Building Regulations – Make Sure You’re up to Date

02.07.12

If you’re considering a loft conversion for your home, there are plenty of decisions to make before you can get started. A loft conversion can add a great deal of value to your home as well as providing you and your family with some valuable extra space. If you’ve decided that you want a new study, guest room or extra space for children, then you’ll need to make sure you know your local authority’s loft conversion building regulations.

All Loft Conversion Building Regulations Must be Adhered To

All attic house extensions performed in the UK must meet the loft conversion building regulations as set out by local housing authorities. When planning your loft conversion, your chosen architect and structural engineer should already be up to date with these, however it’s best to submit full plans to your local authority building control so that they can advise you on any changes before work begins.

Fire precautions are one of the key areas to be taken into consideration when adding another storey to a property. The fire resistance of your existing ceilings and doors may need to be upgraded during installations. You should also make sure that your extension has proper insulation, to ensure that the space stays cool in the summer and warm through the winter months.

Check With Your Local Council for the Latest Loft Conversion Building Regulations

It’s a good idea to check with your local council concerning the latest changes to planning permissions. Although many loft conversions can be carried out without a problem, there will be some instances where loft conversion building regulations will call for planning permission before development.
