Loft conversions are an increasingly popular option in London, where space is at a premium and moving home can have a huge impact on your commute and cost of living. Converting your loft space can add up to 30% more living space to your home, offer additional storage areas, and hugely increase the value of your home when you do finally come to sell.
Due to the general property values in the city, most homes qualify for stamp duty when you come to move house – on a lot of properties, just the cost of stamp duty can be close to the entire cost of building a loft conversion. Adding in the inconvenience of moving and the costs of solicitors/movers/etc, and converting your loft may well be the economical choice as well as the most convenient one.
London Planning Permission
Planning for loft conversions in London is now easier to obtain after a number of amendments that allow people to build upwards to the same level as adjacent or surrounding buildings. In many instances, you may not need planning permission at all and should be able to build as a permitted development if you are happy with the restrictions set on this type of loft conversion.
