Rather than have the expense of moving to a larger property,
many families, especially those with children, are taking the opportunity to extend their existing property instead.
There are a number of advantages to doing this:
• You are adding value to your existing property
• You avoid paying stamp duty and fees for estate agents, surveyors and solicitors
• Your children will not have to change schools
• You can stay in a neighbourhood you already know and like
In addition, under the 2013 Permitted Development rules many extensions do not now require planning consent from the local authority.
So, whether you are considering a loft conversion or a kitchen extension, adding a conservatory or a two storey side extension, you are well advised to contact an experienced local building contractor.
You can get a free quotation from Regency Contracting of Gloucester for whatever your requirements are, and we will be happy to provide advice regarding technical matters such as Permitted Development, Building Regulations and planning consent.
