Building Regulations are based on minimum standards only. It must be noted that where residential properties are to be rented out these may be subject to further, and more onerous, legislation in relation to fire precautions and means of escape in the event of fire.
Other areas e.g. room sizes and underground rooms also come under separate legislation covered within the remit of Housing Standards.
