5 Benefits of Extending your Home

  1. Building Extension LiverpoolBuilding a House Extension in Liverpool adds value to your property

The main benefit of adding an extension to your home is that it increases the value of your property. If you are able to extend upwards and convert your loft, recent surveys state that a loft conversion with a double bedroom and en-suite bathroom could add up approx. 20% to the value of a three-bedroom house.

  1. The cost of moving

The average cost of moving house in the UK in 2020 is £8,885. This will vary considerably depending on where you live and the stamp duty on your property.  To give you a rough idea for Liverpool, in L19 postcode prices range from ca. £174k to £349k, so if you were looking to buy a property in the region of £349k stamp duty alone would be £7450. Then add on other upfront costs such as surveyor fees, legal fees, removal costs, insurance costs, estate agent fees, mortgage deposit and broker fees, it is no surprise that there has been a big increase in house extensions and that people are taking the “don’t move, improve” choice.

Moving house is expensive and the process itself is stressful enough to dissuade many people. House extensions are the answer to providing you with the space that you need without having to pay more than you need to.

  1. Change in Permitted Development Rights.

Permitted development rights were relaxed in 2012 to encourage development.  This temporary measure was made permanent last year.  It means that homeowners can now build larger rear single storey-extensions under class A.
