Converting an existing loft into more living space is a considerably more inexpensive way for homeowners in need of more space than migrating to a new property. This is especially true in areas of the country such as London, where real estate is exceptionally costly, making a loft conversion an appealing choice. The good news is that most lofts can be turned into a playroom, office, second bedroom, or any other usable area. First and foremost, you must determine who the legal proprietor of the loft space is. Though you are a leaseholder on the top floor flat, for example, the loft most likely belongs to the freeholder - even if access to it is solely through your property.
The minimum headroom allowed by law may vary depending on the sort of building you reside in. In general, 2.2m from floor to ceiling at its highest point is the minimum size for a loft conversion. If your loft does not fit this criterion, it is quite doubtful that you will be allowed to increase your pitch roof, since municipalities seldom issue permission to do so. One solution would be to decrease the present ceiling heights of the rooms underneath if they have enough spaciousness to accommodate the change.
Many houses, particularly older ones, have impediments in their loft areas, such as water tanks and chimney stacks. While neither of these is a complete impediment to a loft conversion, they may need the removal or reorganization of the loft's plan, which can result in greater costs and longer conversion durations. When it comes to loft conversions, neither water tanks nor chimney stacks are insurmountable impediments, but the cost and delays associated with both should be incorporated into your planning to ensure you stay on schedule and under budget.
Remember that many loft conversions are achievable without obtaining planning approval provided the prerequisites are satisfied. If you need to get a building regulation certificate and follow the Party Wall Act 1996, regardless of whether planning approval is necessary.
