A loft conversion is among the most popular home improvement projects in the UK for easing space pressure on the rest of the home. It’s a great solution for properties in urban areas or where a two-storey extension doesn’t make financial sense.
Loft conversion costs start at around £15,000 for a single ‘room-in-the-roof’ conversion, up to around £55,000 for a ready-made room that is manufactured off-site and then craned into position.
Loft Conversion Building Regulations
When converting a loft, you will need Building Regulations approval. A building control surveyor will inspect your conversion at various stages and will be responsible for issuing a completion certificate upon final inspection.
If your home is semi-detached or terraced, then you will need to notify your neighbours of your planned work if it falls under the requirements of the Party Wall Act.
