Building a house extension is an increasingly popular option in Surrey, where house prices are over £500,000. Stamp duty alone can cost over £15,000 – once you factor in the cost of moving, solicitor fees, and the increase to your property’s value, building a house extension is often the more financially sound alternative. You also experience the added benefits of keeping the same commutes and catchment areas, and not having to box up all of your possessions.
Planning Permission in Surrey
House extensions can often be built as permitted development, avoiding the need for planning permission, if you are willing to work within the framework and build using materials that blend in with the rest of your house. As a general rule, single-storey house extensions can usually be built as permitted developments, whereas multi-storey extensions and extensions that take up the majority of your garden will require planning permission.
We work with experienced architects to ensure that your house extension meets both planning guidelines and your own specific requirements. Our partners will work with you through the design stage and the planning application (if necessary) to give you the best possible chance of success.
