People also ask, what is an illegal garage conversion?
Illegal Garage Conversions. An illegal garage conversion occurs when a property owner or tenants alters or modifies their garage for living purposes without obtaining the proper approvals or permits from the City.
Planning permission is not usually required to convert your garage into additional living space for your home, providing the work is internal and does not involve enlarging the building. A condition attached to a planning permission may also require that the garage remain as a parking space.
