One of the biggest joys of owning your own home is the ability to make whatever changes you wish. Where rented accommodation often comes with a raft of rules and regulations, leaving tenants unable to so much as hang a painting or paint a wall without the express permission of their landlord, owning a home comes with no such restrictions on the interior.
Of course, it’s a slightly different story if you are looking to make changes to the external components of your home. Many people wish to extend or expand existing spaces such as a garage or shed, or even build an extension or conservatory. If you plan to make these additions or amendments to your home, you must first determine whether you will require planning permission in accordance with UK law.
