You should speak with Building Control about your plan and obtain additional guidance you need to be aware of. More importantly, you should also determine whether the work you propose is covered by The Party Wall etc. Act 1996.
You can always contact Loftconversionteam London for assistance in order to get building permission.
The wall you share with your neighbours is referred to as a party wall.
Before starting your house conversion, you'll need their approval/permission. In other words, you must send a party wall notification to your nearby neighbours before beginning construction. You're safe if they agree in writing within 14 days of that notice. You'll need to draught a party wall agreement if they refuse, though.
The terms of your construction (timings, access, and noise levels) and the documentation of the affected wall's appearance before and after need to be covered in this agreement, which a party wall surveyor creates. In case the project causes damage to either house.

According to estimates, up to 25% of a building's heat is lost through the roof; Thus, properly insulating your attic can significantly affect the rest of your house.
You must add thermal insulation to the roof area if it is already uninsulated in order to obtain a U-value of at least 0.16W/m2K. For instance, installing 250mm of mineral wool insulation may do this.
If insulation is already there, your building control officer will ideally look for a U-value better than 0.35W/m2K. If yours falls below this benchmark, make more insulation part of your attic conversion plans.
Depending on your property's size, design type, and complexity, we can normally complete a task in 9 to 12 weeks for most conventional properties.
