On 1st October 2008, and again more recently, the planning regulations in London were simplified and as a result the number of householders opting to convert their lofts vastly increased with some households no longer requiring planning permission. We can help establish the relevant requirements for your property as it may be possible to convert your loft conversion under Permitted Development regulations. If you would like to add extra living space, increase the value of your home and avoid the stress of moving, we offer loft conversions that are of the highest quality in terms of design, craftsmanship and sustainability. Our work will not only give you additional space but will enhance both your property and your lifestyle.
what are the different types of loft conversion?
There are four main types of loft conversions and the type we recommend for your property will depend on a number of factors – property style, roof height, available space, conservation area, local planning regulations, your budget and needs.

Planning regulations have become more relaxed of late in relation to roof terraces, however you are still likely to have most success with the planner if you live in Wandsworth or Hammersmith and Fulham. Roof terraces always require planning permission so are dependent on the leniency of local planners for permission. In our experience roof terraces appear more popular in areas with a large number of flats as space is a premium and gardens tend to be either small or dark, or both. Recently we have done a number of conversions with roof terraces in the Sands End area of Fulham SW6 for these reasons and have noted that these are the properties that have then sold for record amounts in the area!
