How long is building regulations approval valid?
The Building Regulations Approval is valid for 3 years. If you do not build within this time, you will need to make a new application and this will incur further fees.
Do I need planning permissions for all extensions?
Some extensions are allowed under Permitted Development. It is always advisable to check with the Planning Department first. The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM)has produced a booklet called “Planning, a guide for householders”. This booklet outlines the rules of the planning system.
What if planning permission is refused?
Planning permission must only be refused for legitimate planning reasons. The local authority must give a written account of these reasons. If you do not agree with the planning decision you can apply for an appeal.
Can I claim back the V.A.T?
You can reclaim the VAT on labour and materials, but not on the Architectural Services for the new houses, and some conversions such as those involving a change of use. You cannot claim VAT on extensions. If you are unsure, contact your local Inland Revenue office.
What if my neighbors object to my plans?
Planning Permission is valid for 5 years. If you do not build within this time, you will need to make a new application and this will incur further fees.
