There are certain things you need to consider when weighing up whether a loft conversion is the right way to add more space to your property.
Building Regs For Your Loft Conversion In Bromley, Greater London
If you're going to lay flooring boards over the existing joists in the loft space, then this may require a building regulations application to building control.
A building control surveyor from your local council will inspect your conversion at various stages and will be responsible for issuing a completion certificate upon final inspection. Remember that existing doors on the stairway (ground and first floor) should be replaced with fire-resistant doors and this should be indicated on your loft conversion drawings for building control.
Planning Permission For Your Bromley Loft Conversion
To get planning permission, you can ask an architect or builder to confirm this. If you don't want a design that will require planning permission, opt for roof lights or skylights.
If you decide to create a liveable space where you intend to use the room as a normal part of your house, (this includes spare bedrooms which may be used infrequently) in an existing loft space of a home it is likely to require a range of alterations. With some methods a plate will need to be bolted to the wall using shield anchors or rawlbolts, for new floor joists to hang from.
