Architects for house Conversion

The practise of converting homes into apartments is gaining popularity. Splitting a house into two or more flats will increase both your rental income in the near term and your profit on sale in the long term because there is such a high demand for flats in Scotland and UK as a whole. In other words, your house conversion can significantly boost the value of your home and its rental income.

For instance, if you decide to sell, you will actually have more than one property to sell and make money from. Or, if you choose to rent, the more rentable properties you own will enable you to charge a higher rent.

If you divide your home into two apartments, you will earn about twice as much money as you would normally, and if you divide it into three apartments, you would earn nearly three times as much rent.

But where do you even begin?

Although some common building projects are exempt from planning permission under “permitted development rights,” you will need both planning permission and building regulations approval if you want to convert your home into an apartment. Therefore, in addition to making sure your contractors convert your property on time and within your budget, you must ensure that your design is sound and that you adhere to all legal requirements.

  • We can provide you advice on how to make the greatest use of your house and complete the renovations to a high standard as architects and planning consultants who specialise in converting buildings. Additionally, we can submit applications for building control and planning permission on your behalf, giving you peace of mind by ensuring compliance with both of these regulations.
  • Your proposal must be acceptable in terms of the development’s layout and functional requirements, as well as the siting, massing, and scale of new structures, the architectural style and materials used, the spatial and visual character of the neighborhood, the landform and landscaping, privacy and amenity, including the avoidance of pollution, crime prevention measures, energy efficiency, and building regulations.

At ATW Chartered Architects, we strongly support conversions as long as the intended use of the converted buildings and the conversion itself doesn’t cause harm. We think that if done properly, home conversions can support urban renewal and alleviate pressure to build homes on Green Belt properties.

Large detached homes, semi-detached homes, or terraced homes in sustainable locations that are no longer fit for single-family occupancy are the types of properties we work on for flat conversion. We have worked with scores of landlords to effectively convert their buildings into several flats in order to greatly boost their wealth. As flat conversion architects. We can also assist you.
