Building regulations apply whether you are self building, renovating or extending. In fact, the majority of construction work – even fairly minor alterations – will require building regulations compliance of some kind of the other. 

Of course, if you're building a new home entirely from scratch, you'll be required to get to grips with a lot more of these regulations than those looking at building regulations for extensions or if you're just undertaking some light remodelling to your home.
