The adding and changing of soil pipes requires building regulations. Legally you should inform your local council that you want to carry out the work, they will charge you for coming out and inspecting the works are done correctly.

If you are doing this legally, then you should inform building control, especially if the main run is shared by others.
This is the case in my area, but could differ.

If the pipework is on your property you do not need permission but you must be clear about what pipes they are ( foul or surface water) before you connect to them and abide by local water bylaws,regards Terry.
