|Full or Partial Renovation Work|
Renovation work.Whether you're revamping your own home or redeveloping a house or flat to sell on, it's likely the work you do will be subject to planning permission and building regulations. You also need to consider any issues with party walls.
You are breaking the law if you do any work that doesn’t comply, or without first getting the relevant permission. Projects can be stopped and developers forced to tear down renovations or extensions at their own expense if modifications haven’t received permissions.
‘People often confuse planning permission and building regulations. They are both statutory requirements if you plan to alter a property. Planning and building regulations are completely separate requirements.
