HOUSE EXTENSIONS

House extensions in South West London are growing in popularity as more and more houses are required to accommodate house shares and large families.

As a constantly evolving area, you want to ensure you’re receiving modern house extensions in London. Here at London Urban, we’re proud to offer this service.

We are a company of house extension builders in London, offering a modern design and build service. House extensions are one of the many bespoke services that we provide in order to bring you closer to your dream home.

HOW MUCH DO THEY COST?

The concern at the forefront of everyone’s mind ahead of a house extension is the costs. Unfortunately, there’s no clear-cut answer since it’s so dependent on the size of your home and the scale of your project. Despite this, the execution of a single storey extension will typically cost between £1,800 and £3,000 per square metre. However, a two storey extension will cost significantly more so this must also be considered.

HOW MUCH VALUE DO THEY ADD?

Once again, the level of value that an extension will add to your property depends on the project’s scale and your home’s size. Despite this, any extension is sure to add value to your home as space is greatly treasured. This is particularly true of the London area where it’s densely populated, and space is a rarity.

In London, more bedrooms equate to more value due to the large and youthful population. House sharing is common practice in London amongst young people, meaning that four- and five-bedroom houses are particularly sought-after. A house extension in London will allow you to sell your house for much more than you bought it.

DO YOU NEED PLANNING PERMISSION?

Your planning permission requirements depend on the scale of your extension, but you don’t need to worry about this as London Urban handles all the necessary paperwork for you. Despite this, planning permission can slightly slow down the process, so if you’re keen to get started right away stick with the following:

  • A detached property can be extended by 8m to the rear if it’s a single storey extension, or by 3m for two storeys.
  • A semi-detached or terraced house can be extended by 6m to the rear for a single storey extension.
  • A single storey extension isn’t permitted to be higher than 4m and can’t be higher than the original dwelling.
  • Two storey extensions aren’t permitted to be closer than 7m to the back border.
  • Side extensions are only permitted to be single storey with a maximum height of 4m and a width no greater than half of the existing property.
  • Extensions must be built using a similar material to the original building.
  • Extensions aren’t permitted to go beyond the building line of the existing property.
  • Extensions aren’t permitted to cover more than half of the garden.
  • Outside of these guidelines, your project will likely require planning permission.
