Government issues Guidelines on Loft Conversions

Converting the roof space may be a convenient  way of obtaining additional living space in
an existing dwelling house, without extending into the garden. However there are many issues to be resolved before any works are carried out. There is a legal requirement to comply with Building Regulations, including those related to fire safety. The purpose of these fire safety requirements is to safeguard you and your family, should a fire occur in your home.

Before deciding to carry out any works, an assessment of the feasibility of achieving the required accommodation and complying with the statutory requirements (including fire safety requirements) should be made. ABL Surveyors can provide you with professional advice on the design of your attic conversion, following through to the the selection of a
competent contractor, the supervision of the conversion work, the certification of payment instalments to the builder, and the certification of the completed conversion as being in compliance with applicable Planning / Building Regulations. Having compliance certification on file will be helpful if you should decide to sell your house, at some future date.
