Hi
Does anyone know what are the extra building regulations that need to be satisfied when converting a house into flats?
Thanks, Teilo

Extensive regulation with regard to fire protection, means of escape and noise.

In the absence of written confirmation from your BCO to the contrary, you should assume full compliance with all current Building Regs will be trigged by the 'change of use'.

A stack of regs if done correctly. Well beyond the scope of a newsgroup reply. Look on the OPDM web site and follow on.

There's no _extra_ Building Regulations that apply; there is only one set of Building Regulations (http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/uploads/br/BC_Consolidated_Bldg_Regs.pdf). Regulations 5 & 6 define a change of use and detail the Parts that apply to it. You then need to read the Approved Documents for those parts (http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/england/professionals/en/1115313971412.html). The other Regulations are also relevant (depositing plans, giving notice, workmanship, etc).
