Make sure your project ideas are within the law
The Building Regulations 2010 applies to certain alterations within your home, as well as the construction of new buildings. If you're considering a major project, it's important to make sure you have approval from your local authority first. DMC Consulting Engineers is able to offer expert advice to all homeowners within the M25 area.
Do my alterations require approval?
While most home improvement projects don't require approval certain jobs may need to be approved by your local authority. This can include things such as:
Replacing or installing a heating system
Installing a fixed air conditioning system
Electrical work such as replacing fuse boxes
If work is done without the correct approval, this means you won't have the correct certificates of compliance which may be needed when you sell your home.
