How long will the conversion take?

A loft conversion typically takes between 6 to 8 weeks, largely depending of course on the size and requirements of the conversion, eg. En-suite fitments, sauna, office, speciality bedroom requirements as fitted wardrobes etc, and facility to accommodate sport equipment etc. A clearer estimation of timeline can be given when our representative calls to note your requirements.

Will we need planning permission/ building regulations?

All loft conversions, as any major alterations to a home, need building regulations from the local authorities. With regards to planning permission……. If your property has permitted development right, then planning permission is not required. In most cases without development rights, planning permission is required. Our representative will be able to give you a more detailed answer to this question when he sees the property. Our experience is that most conversions do not require more than building regulations, which is simply a case of letting the local authority have copies of the intended conversion.
