Loft extensions London get the ‘What Mortgage’ Approval

Leading industry title ‘What Mortgage’ calls loft extensions, London and UK wide “an excellent way of creating more space, without having to increase the footprint of the property.”

In a recent article the well-trusted magazine compared loft conversions with regular extensions and noted they were often preferable as they did not always need planning permission and are generally completed at a lower cost. The article also included some useful advice to help homeowners understand loft extensions. London based experts at Bespoke Lofts agree with the article and hope it helps homeowners make sensible decisions when choosing a builder to plan and complete the conversion.

Making a Loft Conversion Work

Experts at Bespoke Lofts back the advice given in ‘What Mortgage’ on planning for the best conversion, as well as choosing a reliable, reputable firm to undertake the work. For stress-free loft extensions London experts and ‘What Mortgage’ recommend the following tips to help the process move swiftly.

Be Clear on Planning

Although not all loft conversions require planning permission, it’s important to know what the regulations are. To meet the criteria to proceed with a conversion without planning permission, loft extensions, London and country wide, must meet regulations including using approved materials, not exceeding the size of the roof and be in an area that does not restrict building such as in a conservation area.

Is there Room for a Loft Conversion?

Some homes may not be right for loft extensions. London homeowners have found their homes are not suitable for fitting in an additional staircase, making a conversion impossible.

Choose the Right Firm

It’s so important to choose the right firm when planning loft extensions. London is home to many so it can be difficult to know who to trust. The best way of making a decision is to always opt for a firm who is a member of a leading industry body such as the Federation of Master Builders. This membership is a guarantee that the firm is experienced, qualified, insured and safe.
