As many areas of East London are currently benefiting from a vast regeneration project brought by the 2012 Olympics, improving your Stratford or Hackney property with a loft conversion will enable you to benefit from the increased property prices that the current improvements are certain to bring.
As transport links are improved, new jobs are created and many new homes are built in the area, East London property owners are sure to benefit.
Extra space that’s cost-effective
Whilst the prospect of moving to a brand new high spec apartment in order to gain extra space may appeal, extending your existing terrace property with the addition of a loft conversion could well be a more cost-effective option.
What would you find in the majority of lofts in a typical East London terraced house? Perhaps the water tank, a collection of empty suitcases and boxes full of things that haven’t been touched for years! Choosing to convert the loft could provide the extra space you require in your home at just a fraction of the cost of moving, and a lot less upheaval. Converting your loft space could add an average of 30% to your property value – particularly in an up and coming area – yet typically it costs one-third of moving to a larger house with an extra room or two.
The perfect time for a conversion
Abbey Partnership have been carrying out loft conversions in East London for over 16 years. Whether you require a dormer loft conversion in your Bethnal Green terraced house, or a hip-to-gable loft conversion to add a substantial amount of space to your East End semi, we are here to help. With changes to planning laws in 2008 meaning that the majority of homeowners are not required to obtain planning permission in order to convert their loft, now is the perfect time to look upwards and convert your attic space.
A loft conversion can be many things to many people. A space to live with the creations of extra bedrooms, a space to work with the creation of your own private study, or a place to play with the creation of a toy filled playroom for the kids or a gadget filled haven for the big kids.
