How much does a garage conversion cost Manchester?

It’s important to check your garage conversion plans with the local authority before starting work. You or your builder will need to submit your plans and inform the building control department 48 hours before starting any work. Depending on your location, you may also need a fire risk assessment and a structural survey carried out before beginning any work. Some houses have restrictive leases and deeds which prevent a garage being converted into living space, so you will need to check with your landlord.

Generally speaking, it will cost around PS10,000 – PS20,000 to convert an integral garage into a living space. However, if you’re looking to create an extra kitchen or bathroom then costs will increase to include water and gas, as well as white goods and fittings.

In most cases, you won’t need to get planning permission for a garage conversion, as long as it doesn’t change the structure of the building and meets certain requirements. These include fire safety, electrical and plumbing work, insulation and ventilation.
