Frequently Asked Questions
A common concern among UK homeowners is that converting your garage will devalue your property. The truth is, it all depends on the location of the property and condition of the garage.
One of the main things to consider is whether or not the garage is in good condition or if there are any potential structural issues. If you’re planning on keeping the space as a garage, then you likely don’t have to worry about costs associated with renovation and repairs. However, if you’re planning on converting it into another room, then you will want to make sure that the floor can support additional weight and that there are no major problems with electrical wiring or plumbing, as these can be expensive fixes.
In addition, you will want to check any neighborhood regulations regarding home-based businesses. While these regulations vary by area, it’s best to determine if any restrictions exist before moving forward with your plans.

The recent changes to the permitted development rules have allowed homeowners to convert their garage into a living space without having to go through the standard planning process and secure council permission. In fact, the government has been very clear about the benefit of these changes: more housing stock, more housing options for first-time buyers, and more flexibility for homeowners.
It is always best to check the local council website for the latest info on Milton Keynes building control fees, council building control fees and building notice cost.
Garage conversions are on the rise in Milton Keynes. The number of people undertaking them has almost doubled in the last three years, and there are multiple agencies offering advice on how to do it.
If you’re thinking about doing this yourself, you will need to make sure that your property doesn’t fall into any of the categories that are prohibited by law. If it does, you will have to find an alternative living space for yourself, or pay a fine.
This means that if you live in a house (as opposed to an apartment or a townhouse), and if your house is more than 50m from either your front garden or the street (which is marked by a public footpath), then you can legally convert your garage into a room. This is because the building regulations consider garages to be part of houses, and they prohibit anything being placed on top of them – whether it’s a master bedroom or workshop space.
The average cost of a garage conversion in Milton Keynes, UK is about £8,000.
The price may vary depending on the type of garage conversion you are looking for. For example, it may cost more to convert a detached garage than an attached garage.
This price reflects a common configuration of a new room at the end of an existing garage, with the floor being raised to meet the height of the rest of the house. This is a typical layout for garages intended for conversion into living space, but there are other possibilities. For example, if you would like to add on to your existing house rather than build from scratch, you might consider building a garage extension instead.
This is typically only feasible if your house has an attached garage, so it’s something to think about when you’re buying your home. One advantage of adding on instead of converting a single-car garage is that your converted space will have more windows and thus better light and air circulation.
