  • Title: Why Choose Us | Abbey lofts
    Descriptive info: Why Choose Us?.. We could say many things about Abbey Lofts and about what we feel separates us from other loft conversion companies in the areas we cover - North London, East London, West London, Herts, Middlesex and Essex..

  • Title: Loft Conversion Planning Permission Rules, Regulations & Requirements
    Descriptive info: Tweet.. Loft Conversion Planning Permission.. Since the new changes to planning law in Oct 2008 , most loft conversions do not require planning permission.. If your property falls within the following list of categories, planning permission may be required.. Your property is a flat.. The existing ridge line to your roof needs to be raised.. The slope or any part of the roof which faces a highway is to be altered.. The proposed loft conversion exceeds 40 cubic meters in the case of a terraced house or 50 cubic meters in any other case.. (This is volume added externally with dormers etc..  ...   development rights of your property are restricted by conditions attached to a previous planning permission or your property deeds.. An "Article 4 Direction" covers the building.. Article 4 Directions are issued by the Council in circumstances where specific control over development is required, primarily where the character of an area of acknowledged importance would be threatened.. They are therefore more commonly applied to conservation areas.. Such Directions are usually applied over an area rather than an individual property and are registered as a Local Land Charge, so that you will normally be aware of their existence.. This can be checked with your Council..

  • Title: Loft Conversion Permitted Development Rights & Requirements Information
    Descriptive info: Loft Conversion Permitted Development.. Since the changes were made to planning law in Oct 2008 it is very likely that your loft can be converted under permitted development.. Planning will only be required under certain circumstances (see planning).. Permitted development is the best way to maximizing your potential space as planning permission will usually mean some constraints on the size of your conversion.. The following states the conditions for permitted development:.. The house is a single family dwelling and not a flat or maisonette.. The proposed extension or dormer window should not be raised above the highest part of the roof.. The slope of any part of the roof, which faces a  ...   roof, do not face a highway.. A hip to gable conversion is also permitted in the same circumstances.. In cases where work can be done under permitted development, a certificate of lawful development may be obtained prior to commencing the project.. Certificate of Lawful Development.. These can be obtained from the local authorities and are not planning applications.. The purpose of these certificates is to ensure that your proposed extension or conversion is within your permitted volume.. Plans will need to be submitted to the local authority, who will check and confirm in writing the legitimacy of the proposed work.. These can take approximately 6 weeks but are not a legal requirement..

  • Title: Loft Conversion Building Regulations - Approval, Plans & Information
    Descriptive info: Loft Conversion Building Regulations - UK.. Planning permission is not normally necessary for loft conversions, although this does depend on a number of conditions (for example, there must be no extension higher than the highest part of the roof, no balconies, and there are volume limits too, as well as a number of other factors to consider).. However, building regulations are always part of the process for all loft conversions, whether the conversion needs planning permission or not.. How do loft conversion building regulations work?.. Each and every conversion must be inspected for approval, either by your local authority's Building Control, or by independent, regulated inspectors.. No matter who is charged with inspecting your conversion, a 'building notice' is required from your local authority before any construction work can begin.. Abbey Loft Conversions Ltd will apply for the building notice on your behalf.. Once the application is submitted, construction cannot begin until at least 48 hours later.. Three inspections will be required during the construction of your loft conversion.. After the final inspection has taken place and the work has been passed (i.. e.. your loft conversion meets the building regulations), a completion certificate will be issued.. It's important to keep this somewhere safe so you can prove the safety of your conversion if you ever sell your property.. What do loft conversion building regulations cover?.. UK building regulations will cover a number of elements of a loft conversion, including the floor, the structural soundness and the insulation.. The regulations are there to ensure that the new structure is completely safe.. Joists.. Using your loft as a living space will mean that the floor has to hold a lot more weight than it did originally.. As such, the structural strength of the new floor of your loft conversion must be sufficient enough to hold the added weight, or it will not meet  ...   and ceiling height.. Your loft conversion must offer sufficient headroom and a high enough ceiling height for it to be a practical living space.. This applies both to the living area itself, and the staircase up to the conversion as well.. Insulation depth, energy efficiency and U-Value.. Any dwelling should be energy efficient.. Any walls, roof slopes, ceilings and new windows and doors installed in a loft conversion will be measured to determine how much heat passes through the glass and framework.. The amount of heat lost must not exceed a certain limit, known as the 'U-Value'.. Even if the rest of your existing property doesn't comply with this standard, your new loft conversion still must have sufficient insulation to meet the building regulations.. In terms of keeping sound transference to a minimum, insulation between the conversion and the rooms below must be sufficiently effective, as must the insulation in any new internal walls.. If you live in a terraced or semi-detached house, you may also find that you have to improve the insulation between yours and your neighbours' lofts.. Ventilation.. Your new loft conversion must be ventilated properly to ensure that it meets building regulations.. There should be a window that is a twentieth of the total floor area of the new living space, and there should be a mechanical fan of sufficient power if you are installing a bathroom.. The roof void must also be ventilated to prevent condensation.. The information provided about loft conversions and building regulations above is designed as a brief guide to get you started thinking about what you might need to do to comply and get your conversion passed.. However, each conversion will be judged individually.. If you have any questions about loft conversions and building regulations in your area, you should call your local authority.. Abbey Lofts will be able to provide further advice also..
