A building warrant is the legal permission to start building work, or to convert or demolish a building. If you carry out work that requires a building warrant without first obtaining a warrant you are committing an offence. Verifiers are responsible for issuing building warrants. In assessing your application for a warrant, they must apply the standards set by the building regulations at the date of your application.
These plans should clearly show the location and nature of your proposals and how they relate to any adjoining or existing building. The type of materials and products being used, the size of rooms, the position of appliances proposed, and drainage details are needed. Structural design certification or calculations may be required to support the application - there will be an additional fee when required.
Submission fees are based on the estimated value of the work you propose, not the cost of the work. An indication of the fee can be found on your local council's website. Please note that the fee is for the application and not just for the issue of warrant; it is not usually refundable. Certain discounts and refunds may apply if you use an approved certifier.
What we do
Loft conversions are one of the best ways you can invest in your home. With a loft conversion it’s not just that extra room you gain – a well-planned conversion can provide additional storage underneath your new stairs, as well as decreasing the strain on the rest of the rooms in your home.
Not only will you save money in the short term, but home extensions are a great way of adding value to your home’s worth! If you build a room that is truly effective to the home’s overall design, it will absolutely raise the market worth of the home; the square footage is higher and the home is even more functional after the extension. The cost-effectiveness of home extensions really is a reason in itself to choose this option.
Personally design your own house from the ground up, allowing you to express and personalise the home to your every need.
