Terraced Home Extensions: Important Guidelines

ProAktive TERRACED HOME EXTENSIONS: IMPORTANT GUIDELINES Before carrying out a terraced house extension or remodelling project, you should research ceiling prices on the road – the maximum value of any house in a particular location. Bear in mind that your house will still be a terrace, surrounded by other terraces, and this will inevitably influence what it will eventually be worth. Careful consideration should be given to what particular areas of a project will help add value to a property too. TERRACED HOUSE EXTENSIONS & THE PARTY WALL ACT You will need to pay attention to the Party Wall Act, if your extension will be up to the boundary of a neighbour's property or on or up to a neighbour's wall. For two floor extensions there should be no side windows at first floor level that can overlook neighbouring houses. No new windows should be placed within 2.4m of the boundary that they face. IMPROVEMENTS YOU CAN ΜΑΚE ΤΟ Α TERRACED HOUSE Converting your loft Relocating a bathroom upstairs Additional bedrooms Basement conversion Increasing natural light D Creating an entrance hall Adding a side-return extension to create a kitchen diner PERMITTED DEVELOPMENT RIGHTS There is a lot of development projects you can carry out to a terraced house without applying for planning permission, and these works fall within your Permitted Development rights. You will not usually need to apply for planning permission for a terraced house extension if: It is not any nearer to the highway than the nearest I part of the original house, unless there would still be 20m of clear space between the house and the highway It covers no more than 50% of the area of land around the original house, taking into account outbuildings It will be no more than 4m in height and within 2m of 3 the property boundary and no more than 6m deep for a single floor or 3m for a two floor extension The volume will not be increased by more than 10% or 4 50m3 (whichever is greater up to a maximum of 115m³) 5 The house is not listed or in a Conservation Area For projects like this it is very important to have self build insurance in place to safeguard against any risks or downfalls.
