London Loft Conversions – FAQs

Q. Do I Need Planning Permission for a loft conversion in London?

A. Not if you are merely changing the use of the space; i.e. to use it as a study instead of just storage space. You will need to upgrade the flooring and certain aspects of the loft, but unless you are making major structural changes, you will not need permissions. However if you need to install a window, alter the building’ s structure, or change the roof in any way, then planning permissions will be required. You may also need to consult Building Regulations and be sure to comply with all regulations in your area.

Q. How Long Is Planning Likely To Take?

A. Between 6 to 10 weeks; depending upon the type of conversion required.

Q. Do I Need The Lawful Development Certificate?

A. The Lawful Development Certificate, or LDC, is not a legal requirement but can be beneficial to the homeowner, particularly when they decide to sell. The LDC certifies that all construction work was lawful and complies with building regulations.

Q. Can I Use The Existing Retractable Steps?

A. No, for a habitable loft conversion in London a solid stairway is required, although it is possible to find a space-saving stairway.

Q. Will I Need To Upgrade My Fuse Box?

A. This will depend upon the condition of your existing fuse box and if it complies with current Electrical Regulations, which have recently changed. If however your box does comply it will not need changing as long as it can withstand the demands of any extra heating or other electrical requirements. If these conditions are not met, this will result in the need for a new and updated fuse box.

Q. How Long Would The Actual Loft Conversion Take?

A. This of course will depend upon the amount of work required and how many changes are necessary. To convert an existing space will not take long at all, but for a full extension with new windows and rewiring, as well as extensions to central heating, could take between two and three months.

Q. How Do I Choose The Right Company For My London Loft Conversion?

A. Initially you should check that the company is registered with the correct authorities; i.e. the FMB, or Federation of Master Builders, and their architects should be members of, or associated with, the RIBA; Royal Institute of British Architects. These qualifications will help to ensure that the people you are hiring are fully experienced in their field.

Further safeguards would include checking that the company is fully insured to cover any eventuality, and check their website for customer feedback. Not all companies are honest about this however and some may print their own recommendations, but genuine customer feedback will generally give some details of the writer and you will be able to contact the customers themselves for genuine feedback.
