Loft Conversion

When Carrying out a loft conversion you will normally have to cut into the Party Wall to make pockets to insert a Padstone or Bearing plates to rest the steel beams on. If this is the case you will need to serve a Party Wall Notice (sometimes referred to a Party Structure Notice).

  • A Section 2.2(f) for cutting into the wall to make the pockets.
  • Also most likely needed is Section 2.2(n) for exposing of the party wall while the roof is off.
  • And if you intend to raise the Party Wall for the side of the Dormer cheek Section 2.2(a).
  • If a flashing is needed to weatherproof this can be included under 2.2(f).

If this all seems a little too much and you would like some advice or would like us to draft and serve Notice on your behalf, please feel free to contact us.
