Converting a loft or attic into a liveable area requires building rules permission. This section describes how to make changes to the loft area of an existing house that is no more than two floors high. Changes to an apartment or other homes such as maisonettes or houses with more than three stories will be comparable but may be more substantial and extend to other portions of the structure. The regulations will be used to ensure things like
• The new floor's structural strength is adequate.
• The structure's stability (including the present roof) is not jeopardized.
• There is a fire-safe escape • The stairs to the new floor are safe
• Make sure that there is enough sound isolation between the conversion and the rooms below.
If you live in a terraced or semi-detached house, a loft conversion will almost certainly necessitate a 'party wall' arrangement with your immediate neighbors. This is due to the fact that most construction work requires structural adjustments to shared walls, chimneys, and roofs, which may cause damage to neighboring houses. The Party Wall Act provides a method for resolving conflicts while also protecting all parties. Any structural work that affects party walls requires written authorization from the owners of the adjacent properties. If you reside on a terrace, you will need permission from both sides. Drilling into a party wall to install shelves or electric cabling and plugs is so modest that it would ordinarily fall outside of the scope of the Act. The essential question is whether the effort will have an impact on the strength and support of a common structure. If you are unsure if your loft conversion necessitates a Party Wall Notice, consult a skilled building expert, such as a surveyor or architect.
