The loft in your house is usually not designed as a dwelling place. Even though converting the loft into a dwelling place does not require planning permission in some cases, you will need building regulations approval to make sure you can perform the changes you require. As a loft conversion requires structural changes to roof and party walls along with the installation of a staircase and new floor space, you will need a chartered structural engineer who can ensure the safety and functionality of your loft.
