Garage conversions can be a very cost-effective way of achieving that much needed study or spare bedroom often require very little in the way of building works. With recent alterations to the planning law most garage conversions do not require a planning application. Building regulations are required and Anderson North Ltd strongly recommend applying for a Lawful development certificate. This is a certificate that provides the property owner with a dated and written confirmation that works did not require full planning permission and is particularly valuable at a time of sale.
In order to achieve building regulations approval a garage conversion usually consists of upgrades to the walls, roof, and floor. The existing garage door is removed, and a new window is installed with a new wall beneath to match the existing finishes.
Anderson North Ltd will deal with all aspects of the design process to gain statutory approvals. Once approved Anderson North Ltd can provide contact details for recommended building companies that specialise in garage conversions.
