  • Licence to alter
    Affinity
    Hello,

    I would like your view.
    In a licence to alter, is the following timeline pretty standard?
    - for the works must be started within six months from completion of the licence
    - to be completed within 12 months from completion of the licence

    12 months...

    the key thing is that the usual buildings insurer will not cover the works in progress and the contractor must have cover for work in progress

    Definitely not. The time limit is not too long for a conversion. It allows for all the sort of delays that can occur. If I were acting for a leaseholder I would go for belt and braces and be looking for a bit longer. In fact I am not sure a time limit is really needed. More important is to provide that...

    Thank you, Lawcruncher.
    Do you consider converting the loft into a second bedroom and bathroom something minor?

    Your view is appreciated. Many thanks

    Depends on the nature of the works, but I would not say it is too long for anything other than something very minor.

    This is the front garden of a groundfloor garden flat. I have decked an area with level ground wooden decking. Should I have applied for planning permission.It a house which was converted into 2 flats some time ago

    When we added a 'raised' deck we were told it needed pp due to the impact on neighbouring properties, ie looking into their gardens/windows.

    Presumably if it is at ground level then it is just the change of surface treatment so pp not necessary.

    Although the flooding issue is the one that has resulted in changes in the permitted development rules (ignored by the cowboy front yard concreters) there is another concern about destroying wildlife corridors.

    You should also check the original planning consent for conditions. Even for...

    i agree with the previous comment.
    so long as water can drain onto and into the ground below, I don't see it as an issue. there has been lots of concern over the last few years re turning front gardens into non permeable surfaces and resulting in rain water being directed into sewers which are...
