Hi everyone, I am an Architect, and would love to answer any questions you have on planning, design, construction etc etc. I am starting a blog called AskAnArchitect, and will feature the answers on the blog too. Kind Regards, Oli
Building regulations used to stipulate that 3 storey houses required self closing fire doors I understand the self closing requirement was removed in 2007. HMO's require self closers to be fitted however can anyone tell me if they are required for "Rented Single Household (family) Occupation"? Thanks Robert
Hello everyone, I'm in the process of buying my first BTL house and I encountered a few problems. The house has a rear extension built over a sewer pipe. The extension was built in the 80s and has a planning permission. But there is no build over agreement with water company. I've read that building over a sewer pipe can be a problem, as the extension can cause damage to the pipes if not done properly and in case the pipes need repairing this could be very costly. On the other hand the extension has been there for 30 years and from the building survey there are no visible problems. Als
