This quote from the UK planning permission website explains it best:
“Converting an existing residential cellar or basement into a living space is in most cases unlikely to require planning permission as long as it is not a separate unit or unless the usage is significantly changed or a light well is added, which alters the external appearance of the property.”
So only certain cases of basement conversion in the Kent area will require planning permission, we advise you speak to our experts during your quote and consultation for further information.
In cases where your ceiling is too low, you would need to dig and lower the floor, this is something we could advise you on, you would likely need planning permission for this adjustment.
Unless you’re an expert in damp proofing, planning permission and matters of architecture we’d suggest that a good option for you would be to hire a company to manage and build the basement conversion for you, chances are we can help you.
1/ Increases your homes value – In the area of Kent, house prices are known to be above the average house price in the UK, a basement conversion can increase the value of a house by 25%, so it is even more advantageous to people living in areas’ such as Kent to extend their home by having a basement conversion put in.
2/ Allows for more usable living space – You can do a lot of different things with a basement conversion, basement conversions are usually more flexible than with lofts because you are closer to the main living spaces, and also the ceiling is more of a conventional shape, allowing for more potential for variety, for example, a home cinema can be viable in a basement or a gym.
3/ Some people choose to rent out their Kent basement conversions – many landlords are now looking to expand their properties for purposes of increasing their rental income, this is now made possible through basement conversion, if this is your situation you now have a one-stop-shop that can take care of your conversion from the very start, through to completion and decoration.
Basement conversions in Kent usually take anywhere between 12-24 weeks to complete, they generally take longer than with attic conversion due to the fact that structural changes are required in many basement conversions.
The free consultation & quote will be your opportunity to ask all the questions and explore all the possibilities you wish in relation to your property, you will be informed of what is viable for you, and what would make the most practical “sense” for your cellar/basement, this will depend on the size and shape of the basement area.
It is during this time that the representative should be able to give you a quotation based on your requirements and aims.
It is best that you speak with us about this once you’ve made contact, we can usually be flexible and we like to be as sensitive to the needs of our customers as possible.
No problem. Simply fill out the online form to request your quote and we’ll be in touch to arrange that for you.
