Hi, the loft conversion was built in 1980s with a dormer. Surveyor said there is no steelwork although new 225mm by 50mm joists have been provided and these span from front to rear. He said as a loft room, the frame work is better than normally seen but if this is to be used as a bedroom then the framing falls short of what would now be provided. What attracted us to this house was this extra room which we wanted to used as a 4th bedroom. Would it be unsafe now to use as a bedroom? Have you got a 1980s converted loft and also used as a bedroom?
We are just selling a house with an 80s conversion. We have used as a bedroom, there have been no issues although loft rules have changed and I know the buyers' surveyor has made recommendations for installing fire doors etc.
