Alterations requiring Building Regulation approval
Whilst there are some buildings that are exempt from the need to gain approval, you will generally need to submit a Building Regulation application form before you start any building work.
There are many alterations that you may consider undertaking yourself in the home, which do require building regulation approval (homeowner guide 1 - PDF document.)
Although seemingly trivial it will become a problem when you sell your property, as well as leaving you liable for prosecution, if you have not obtained building regulation approval before carrying the work out.
