    building regulations

    what are the the implications if you do not follow building regs approval when converting 3 no. Existing flats into 5 studios. I.e. comply with part b fire, but not part e sound & part l, energy.
    Cheers

    You won't get a completion certificate, and won't be able to sell them.

        You won't get a completion certificate but it would be possible to sell them. However any half decent solicitor will pick up on the fact they have been converted without buildings regulation consent and nobody needing a mortgage will be able to buy them so you will be restricted to cash buyers, buying against the advice of their solicitor. That means they will only pay you way less than the normal price for the flat so it would be wise to convert them with building regulation consent and get full market price.

        There is no time limit for enforcement of non compliance with the building regulations by way of injunction. You will also need planning permission to convert to 5 studios.

          No insurance cover, difficulties in selling, possible criminal prosecution.
          There is always scope for misinterpretation.

          If my posts can be interpreted in two ways, one that makes you feel angry and one that doesn't, I meant the latter.

          Everyday is an opportunity to learn something new.
