Loft conversion without planning permission or building regs

We have received the building survey report and nothing serious has been flagged up. The notes about the loft conversion came back ok too which is reassuring. All information we got are indicating that the extension was done prior 1985, so getting a certificate of regularisation doesn't seem to be an option anymore.

We only have the route of an indemnity insurance now which provides very little cover in my view and seems to be designed to avoid delays more than anything else.

Any thoughts?... Read More

Loft conversion without planning permission or building regs

Thanks again for all your inputs.

Would anyone know, if under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPRs) or the Business Protection from Misleading Marketing Regulations 2008 (BPRs) or the estate agent act of 1979, estate agents are not allowed to market a property, let’s say as a 3 bedroom bungalow, if one of the bedroom was a loft conversion with no planning permission and no building regulations?

If so would you know under what section is it stipulated?

Thank you... Read More

Loft conversion without planning permission or building regs

Thank you very much for your inputs

I have booked a building survey for 03rd June.
If the loft conversion complies with building regulations or more likely needs (hopefully reasonable) work to do so (which I will use to negotiate the price) would that be enough to make this room fit for a bedroom?
Would the lack of original building regulation paperwork still be an issue?
If so what solution would I have to make it right?

Is it worth applying for a lawful development certificate of existing use to compensate the lack of planning permission?

Many thanks... Read More

I agree, a Certificate of lawful use seems to be the most viable option and I asked my solicitor to work toward that.

He seems to believe that it's not really needed due to the fact that the loft conversion was done over 26 years ago and he advised me to consider the indemnity insurance option instead which looks very limited to me.

With this certificate, would I be able to market the bungalow as a 3 bedroom property in the future when/if we decide to sell?
That's the question!... Read More

Thank you very much for all your replies

Will I be able to 'market' the bungalow, in the future, as a 3 bedrooms property as one of the bedroom is missing planning permission and building regulations?

Thanks
