What you should consider while planning a loft conversion in Fulham?
The first move is to find out if your loft is fit for conversion
The inner height of the new loft from the top of the ceiling joist to the apex below the ridge board is the most important – at a total of 2.3 m at the highest level. The other most critical thing is the pitch of the roof-usually appropriate is a pitch of 30 degrees or greater. The third factor to remember is the size of the current loft room – the minimum room will be 5.50 m from side to side between the inside walls and 7.50 m from front to back.
Do I need permission to plan Loft Conversion Fulham?
Traditionally, consent to planning is not necessary. However, if the roof space is expanded or altered and exceeds the prescribed limits and conditions, or if you reside in a listed building or protected area, permission is necessary. You would need to find an architect to see whether you need planning permission or not. Under Approved Construction, Velux conversions and dormers may be installed, but they must not sit at the main elevation in front of the roofline, nor must they be higher than the highest part of the current roof.
Do I need the approval of the Building regulations?
Much like major home improvements, all loft modifications need Building Regulations approval and sign-off to ensure the safety measures are in place. The rules that apply depend on what kind of conversion you have. By design, construction laws include the following elements: fire protection, sound insulation, floor and beams, stairs, walls, etc.
