Building inspectors may visit the site at different stages during construction to approve the work. They will also wish to see electrical certificates and other proof that work is compliant with current legislation and has been carried out to the required standards.
If the planned house extension involves any party walls or boundaries there could be legal implications and further associated administration.
Obtaining a new water or power supply to the extension will require communication and cooperation with the supplier. If the property is old or in a conservation area you may have to adhere to regulations or guidelines set out by Historic England.
