Converting an existing loft into more living space is a lot more cost-effective way for homeowners in need of more space than migrating to a new property. This is especially true in areas of the nation like London, where real estate is exceptionally costly, making a loft conversion an appealing alternative. The good news is that most lofts can be turned into a playroom, office, second bedroom, or another usable living area.
The minimum headroom allowed by law may vary depending on the sort of building you reside in (and, most likely, the era it was built). In general, 2.2m from floor to ceiling at its highest point is the minimum size for a loft conversion. If your loft does not fit this criterion, it is quite doubtful that you will be allowed to increase your pitch roof, since municipalities seldom issue permission to do so. One solution would be to decrease the present ceiling heights of the rooms underneath if they have enough spaciousness to accommodate the change.
Many homes, particularly older ones, have impediments in their loft areas, such as water tanks and chimney stacks. While neither of them is an absolute impediment to a loft conversion, they may need the removal or reorganization of the loft's plan, which frequently results in greater costs and longer conversion periods. When it comes to loft conversions, neither water tanks nor chimney stacks are insurmountable impediments, but the costs and delays imposed by both should be incorporated into your planning to ensure you stay on schedule and under budget.
Another essential consideration is the council in which the property is located, as each municipality may have distinct requirements. If the home is in a conservation area, the requirements for changes are stiffer - but it doesn't rule out a loft conversion. In general, viewing the surrounding neighborhood can provide a decent indicator of compatibility. If similar buildings in your neighborhood have loft conversions, it is quite likely that your loft can be converted as well.
Remember that many loft conversions are achievable without obtaining planning permission, as long as certain requirements are followed. If criteria for a party wall agreement apply, you must get a building regulation certificate and follow the Party Wall Act 1996 regardless of whether planning approval is necessary.
If you've decided that relocating is too expensive or you can't bear the thought of leaving your cherished house, a loft conversion is one of the greatest ways to gain much-needed room. How much time will it take? How much does it cost? Will it get planning permission? With Loft Conversions Company, you’ll see the worth in every loft that we convert.
