Do I need a Building Warrant?
Yes, as it is treated as a conversion from a garage to form a habitable space. We include this in the our fixed price above.
Here are some of the main Building standards concerning Garage Conversions;
- Insulation (walls, floor & roof need to achieve minimum standards)
- Doors & Windows (generally double glazed to match the existing house)
- Ventilation (Roof, walls & floor require adequate ventilation)
- Structure (if new timber frame or new floor joists are required)
- Fireproofing (particularly when partially converting a garage)
Do I need Planning Permission?
Planning permission is rarely required to carry out a garage conversion as the garage, if it’s integral to the house, is already part of the structure. However,, there are some exceptions, such as;
- The Garage is detached from the house.
- If you live in a Conservation area.
- Your House is a Listed Building
- Original planning counts your garage as a parking space (all new properties require at least 2 parking spaces)
- You live in an area where there are no permitted development rights
