Re: Re: Attic Conversions and Apartments
Your thoughts or advice?
The question – could it be considered an exempted development – given the fact that it is an apratment? If it was a house – there would be no problem – wouldn’t think twice (all other issues considered). The exempted devlopment regulations refer soley to houses? And I am assuming that an apartment does not come under the definition of a house?
Might it be worth seeking a declaration on this or is more clear cut/black and white than I am imagining – i.e. that it probably is not an exempted development and planning permission is required?
Any views or similar experiences on attic conversions would be greatly apprecaited.
Many of todayâ€™s homes are built without a livable attic space. Unfortunately, this type of home overlooks a terrific way to add livable space to your home when it is needed. There are several things that must be considered when you convert an attic into a livable part of your home. Does your attic have an easy access point? Is the ceiling tall enough? Is there already wiring present?
These are only a few of the areas that one should look at when determining if your attic is ready to convert.Imagine what a great feeling it will be when your attic conversion is finished. You will have a great addition to your home and it will really increase the value of your property, as well.
