Do you need to upgrade the 100A service in your house to run power to a detached garage?

All depends on what type of equipment you are going to operate in the garage. I would suggest you call an electrician. You can connect to your existing 100 amp circuit if there is an empty spot for a breaker.

Short answer is Yes. If a garage conversion is carried out you no longer own a link detached house but a semi-detached, indeed if the next house did the same thing you would then live in a terriced house not a link detached

A link detached house is a house that is only joined to another by a garage or just ground flor rom :(((((

A semi detached house has one side of the house that will be attached to another house. A detached house has no shared walls. Most semi detached houses have the garage wall as the shared wall so there is less noise heard from either house.

No. Any connections to the detached garage have to be after the main disconnect of your house panel. You have two options here. You can replace meter with a meter disconnect combo and have the main feed your house and add a breaker to feed the garage or You could install a 400 ap service and place two disconnects at the meter. one for the house and one for the garage. unless you are going to have a serious electrial load in the garage you sould just feed off the panel in the house for cost effectiveness.

Adjacent detached properties which do not have a party wall, but which are linked by the garage(s) and so forming a single frontage.
