Extend your home or move?
Right now the property market is extremely slow, viewing is difficult and house prices are dropping quicker than they have in a decade and there is a lot of uncertainty in the marketplace. If you need more space in the home the best solution would be to add a bespoke extension to suit your home.
Adding to the value of your home
One of the best ways to increase the value of your home is to add an extension, this will give your home a lot more space and depending on whether you decide on one storey or two storeys it can add considerable value. A study from nationwide showed that an average 3 bedroom home, with the addition of a new extension to create a double bedroom with ensuite had the value of the home increased by 23%
What about planning permissions
In recent years, the permissions and rules surrounding home extensions have been relaxed slightly. You won’t need planning permission for your extension as long as:
- The extension does not extend more than 4 metres from the back wall of your original property
- The hight of your single-storey extension does not exceed 4 meters.
- No part of the extension can be within 3.5 meters of any property boundary with a road opposite to the rear wall of the house.
If you are planning something larger you will need to get planning permission.
