Create More Space With a Loft Conversion
In a family, members adjust to living together and share rooms if the house is small. This continues until we finally grow up and the requirement for a separate room becomes a need. The need for a loft conversion in London is highly likely, due to constant population increase. These are times when most families consider relocating to new houses due to a lack of space. So, you are in need of a new room, aren’t you? Unlike people who relocate into larger houses, you might not have to go through the trouble to get the needful.

A Loft Conversion is Your Answer
The old empty attic you had been using to store the waste, can be transformed into a functional room in the ways you can’t imagine. What further makes this enticing is that planning permissions are not requisite in most cases, especially if you don’t intend to extend the room’s area. In meeting the following conditions, a planning permission will not be necessary:
- A volume allowance of 40 cubic meters additional roof space for terraced houses
- A volume allowance of 50 cubic meters additional roof space for detached and semi-detached houses
- No extension beyond the plane of the existing roof slope of the principal elevation that fronts the highway
- Non-existent extension to be higher than the highest part of the roof
- Lack of verandas, balconies or raised platforms
- Side-facing windows with obscure-glazing; any opening to be 1.7m above the floor
A momentous factor while analysing the viability of loft conversion over shifting is cost. Is it cost-effective to reconstruct, at least internally, an entire room on the rooftop than buying a house with new furniture with the capacity you require? Well, yes! Evidently, property value in the UK has risen exponentially in the last decade with average house prices approximately costing GBP 304,105. In London, this is substantially more. On the contrary, the cost of a loft conversion including all surplus charges involved doesn’t exceed GBP 20,000 for a fully renovated single-suite and ranges from GBP 35,000 to GBP 60,000 for a double-suite. This conspicuously speaks in the favour of loft conversion as they are more cost-effective and doesn’t require you to abandon or sell you long-loved house.
