Loft Conversions - London, Bromley, Bexley, Lewisham, Dartford, Greenwich.

  • Do I need planning permission for London building work?
  •  

     

    Only in certain circumstances. Our surveyor will be able to advise you on this. We work with Building Control in many districts of London and as builders well understand permitted development rights.

  • Do I need professionals to help?
  •  

     

    Yes. If your loft conversion is for habitable accommodation then it needs to be planned professionally to ensure it conforms to stringent building and fire regulations. At JGA Construction we can help you out with compliance for general structure and loadbearing, flooring, means of warning and escape, internal and external fire spread protection, roof and interior habitable ventilation, mechanical bathroom ventilation, plumbing, staircases, thermal insulation, electrical safety and soundproofing.

  • What if we have a Party Wall dispute with our neighbour?
  •  

     

    If you are having difficulty communicating and coming to an acceptable agreement with your neighbour over certain aspects of the construction, you can jointly agree a surveyor with your neighbour or if necessary independant surveyors.for both party's can agree a relevant and binding award.

  • How much will my building work cost?
  •  

     

    Each loft conversion is individual to your requirements and your property, so the cost will vary accordingly. JGA Construction has the experience to accurately price up your loft conversion. Our surveyor will be able to quote for the work you require. The amount you spend should reflect immediately on the market value of your house.

  • Can I save money by doing some of the work myself?
  •  

     

    Yes. JGA Construction will do all of the work or just the structural parts. This ensures the structure meets local building regulations.

  • Can all lofts be converted?
  •  

     

    No. In some cases it is not practical to convert. JGA Construction offer a feasibility study to potential customers - this involves a visit by one of our surveyors.

  • What is Building Control?
  •  

     

    Building Control in and around London fulfils a purpose of being a responsibility in regulation and as a service to the relevant council. The duty is to oversee the the boroughs role as set out in the Building Act 1984 and subsequent relevant Planning Legislation. The aim of Building Control is to provide a service to customers and to work with building contractors to maintain compliance with the relevant regulations by giving guidance and assistance in the planning and execution process where potential problems may cause difficulties later.
