If you’re thinking of adding a small extension to your home, it’s important to understand the building regulations surrounding extensions. Building regulations are in place to ensure that new buildings, conversions, renovations, and extensions are going to be safe, healthy and high-performing. It doesn’t normally matter how small you plan on building your extension; most extensions need to be compliant with building regulations no matter their size.
If you are employing an installer to build your extension, the responsibility will usually be theirs to make sure the installation complies with building regulations. However, you should confirm this at the very beginning with them just to be sure. You should also bear in mind that if you are the owner of the building, it is ultimately you who may be served with an enforcement notice if the work does not comply with the regulations.
