    Default Do you need permission to knock down a garage and rebuild

    Looking at buying a house and was wondering if it already has a garage can I knock it down and rebuild it bigger to get a car in and have the door open? Gonna ask the estate agent when sort some viewings. Just got me thinking and also how expensive do you think it would be to build?

    alright mate if it differs from what is already there then yes you need permission however because there is already a garage there and you just want to make it bigger planning permission will be know problem at all. problems would only arrise if you did not have a garage to start with

    It can be slightly more awkward if you're in a conservation area. The simplest thing is to drop an email to the planning department of the local council and check. I have certainly knocked down and replaced a garage with a larger one when I lived in York with no issues. I did write to the council (they didn't do email back then), and they wrote back saying no permission would be needed. If it's a brick garage and against a property boundary you may need permission to demolish it though - again the local planning department will be able to let you know.

    Not entirely true. Most properties have 'permitted development rights' which allows building of structures and extensions to properties without the need for obtaining planning permission.
    philsh,.. can you give me an address for the property and I can give a better idea as any works to a property are site specific and not covered by a blanket decision

    Thanks for the replys No doubt won't have the money to rebuild a garage for a good few years but can always see if the new build people will make the garage abit bigger for me if pay the extra as could maybe add to the mortgage.
