from signing the contract, it can then take 4-5 weeks for clients to approve a set of plans. simply loft will do everything we can to make this process faster if a client is in a hurry; however, not only do we want to ensure that we are delivering the best possible service, but also want to be sure that the client is 100% satisfied with the proposed changes and plans for their london loft conversion, before any work is undertaken.
what is permitted development?
if your property is not in a conservation area or is a flat, you have permitted development rights (pd). this means you can usually develop your loft space without needing to gain planning permission. your development will need to keep within the pd constraints i.e. terraced properties are allowed to develop an additional 40 cubic metres of extra space. semi-detached and detached properties = 50 cubic metres.
what are the different types of loft conversions?
different types of loft conversion include skylight, rear dormer, l-section rear dormer (double dormer), mansard, l-section mansard (double mansard), hip-to-gable and hip-to-gable rear dormer. see our planning section and types of loft conversions article for further details. our planning section also includes the right type of loft conversion for different types of property e.g. terraced, 1930ís semi, victorian etc.
can i convert my loft?
you can check your ridge height with a standard tape measure, which will give you an indication if the space is convertible. but the only real way to know for sure is to invite one of our specialist surveyors to fully assess your property. our specialist surveyors can provide a loft conversion site visit, no matter what area of london you live in.
