The process; If the Garage is attached to your House, then its unlikely you will require planning permission. Planning is required if you live in a conservation area or you have restrictive covenants on your title,so heck your ‘title Deeds’.
You can contact your local council for confirmation of your personal situation. However, in all instances you will require a building permit from the local Authority. The purpose of this, is that a building inspector will periodically inspect the conversion to check that the works carried out meets current building regulations. (i.e. damp proofing, structural load bearing, insulation, fire retardantcy)
Upon completion of the works the building control officer will issue a ‘certificate of completion’. Make sure you retain this certificate. If you sell your House in the future, the buyer’s solicitor will ask to see this!
How long will it take?
allow around 4 weeks. it could take longer if you are incorporating shower rooms or kitchens due to the
plumbing works required.
Added value; A single garage is approximately 14sqm. Properties in South Bucks and into west London range between £400sqft – £2,0000sqft. Therefore, a conversion is always money well spent.
