Loft conversions: How to add value to your home

April 26th 2016

Loft conversions are a great way to add both space and value to a house, as usually this type of development will come under the permitted development rights which means that you might not have to apply for planning permission to extend into a loft space.
However houses and flat that are located in a conservation area will still need to apply for planning permission. If you alter the outside of your roof line to convert your loft space, you will normally need to seek permission from your local council too. The easiest way to check out whether you need to apply for planning permission is to check out your council’s local website - on the site will be a link to planning.
You will also need to make sure that you get building regulation approval. As you will need a building approval certificate at the end of the work, which makes sure that your conversion complies safety regulations concerning structure, ventilation, safety, access and so forth.
