What to consider before borrowing a loft conversion loan?
Loft conversion brings about significant changes in your house. So, there are several things to consider before moving forward. Ask yourself these questions before planning your loft conversion:
• Is my house suitable for a loft conversion?
Checking the structural integrity of your house is the way to go. Loft conversions will add on the burden to your home. Therefore, it is crucial to check if the structure will withstand the changes. You must also ensure that the floor-to-ceiling distance of your loft is at least 2.2 m at the tallest part. If not, get a specialist on board for advice on the best work-around for the issue.
• What type of loft conversion suits my home the best?
Loan conversion costs vary from type to type. Get an idea about the ideal kind of conversion for your loft, considering all the costs involved.
• Do I need planning permission to go through with the conversion?
You’d be surprised to know that most homes in the UK inherently come with an allowance for permitted development. So, you may not need planning permission as long as the converted room doesn’t extend beyond the permitted area.
• What building regulations do I need to keep in mind?
Building regulations are different from planning permission. There are a set of guidelines that you’ll need to satisfy to go through with your loft conversion project – for instance, fire doors, safety stairs, etc. Take the help of a specialist to learn more about these regulations.
How much value will loft conversion add to my home?
A loft conversion can boost the value of your property by up to 20%. Your neighborhood also determines how much the market value of your property increases after loft conversion. For instance, a property with a converted loft in Central London, where there’s a higher demand for extra rooms, can boost your property’s value by a whopping £200,000.

Usually, a tax band change does not affect you until you’re residing at the property in question. A loft conversion will only affect your council tax when you move out of your home.
It could take 4-5 months to convert your loft for a more extensive and large-scale project. However, if it’s a small scale project, it may take 12 weeks to complete it.
