It is estimated that a loft conversion could add 10% to the value of your home as well as provide much needed extra space for you and your family.
In 2015 Movewithus estimated that the average cost of a loft conversion is between £15,000 – £40,000 depending on the size of your property, type of conversion and your location.
A loft conversion could save you having to move to a larger house by utilising space already available to you, enabling you to save on the costs associated with moving, such as stamp duty, estate agent fees and solicitor fees.
Make sure you do your research before applying for planning permission as it isn’t always necessary and would depend on the type of conversion you are having.
If you are planning on converting your loft, now is a great time in the year so the job is complete before winter comes.
