Choosing a specialist loft Conversion Company in Whitechapel is a hugely important decision. You have probably heard a lot of horror stories about bad contractors, and you want to avoid them at all costs. Here's a guide to choosing a loft conversion company in Whitechapel. We'll discuss what to look for and how to avoid being ripped off. And don't forget to check references!
When looking for a loft conversion company in Whitechapel, you should take a look at the type of property that you own. If you have a flat or a row of houses, then you may not need planning permission to convert your loft. However, if you live in a conservation area, then you will need to secure planning permission for any changes. If you're buying a listed building or are living in a listed building, you'll need a permit.
In order to convert your loft in Whitechapel, you have to start the process with the Party Wall Act. This law protects your neighbour's property by preventing unauthorised changes to it. As soon as you start planning your new loft, you must give written notice to your neighbours, and you must pay them at least two months in advance of the work. They should then be given time to consider your plans. If they disagree, a dispute may begin, which can involve a legal battle involving surveys.
The first step in finding a good loft conversion company in Whitechapel is to determine the type of loft you have. The most common types of conversions are a roof light, skylight, or skylights. Skylights are the cheapest way to convert a loft, and they don't require planning permission. During the consultation process, you should consider the placement of windows. The placement of windows will have an effect on the amount of light that gets into your loft.
