You need to know that most loft conversions do not need building permits. However, if the loft is meant for an extension of your house's living space, then you need a Building Regulations Approval. For this you need a floor plan for the Building Control Officer inspection. The Building Control Officer would then inspect the plans and the stages of the work being done to see if the loft is being built according to specifications and if the standard of work conforms to standards.

 

Planning permission is only required if the projected loft would have to undergo a massive structural changes or is located within a conservation area or would have dormer windows. Houses that have not been extended since 1948 most likely fall in the permitted development category. Find out first before you start daydreaming about your loft.

Is it time to call in an architect then? Before you do, consider these points first.

  • Is there enough headroom in the loft? Can you actually stand up? The highest point should be at least 2.30 meters. Added headroom can be accommodated by the construction of dormer windows. The steeper the slope of your roof, the better it is. You can also consider extending the side of the hipped roof.
  • What is the purpose of the converted loft? Is it for an extra bedroom, or an office or just a space to call as your sanctuary?
  • Can the new loft accommodate an extra bathroom? Can your existing plumbing and sanitary system cope with the pressure of the new bathroom?
  • Is the total liveable area of the loft enough for your space need?
  • Consider: electrical wiring, insulation, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning aspects.
