Flat Conversion Overview
The planning policies of most London boroughs state that dwellings being considered for conversion to flats must have an original (un-extended) floor area of at least 120m2 - 150m2. You can sub-divide your property into several flats (*subject to planning permission) if your flat conversion planning drawings and planning application can show that:

  • There is a shortage of housing in your borough.
  • The flats will have adequate parking provision.
  • The flats will have a satisfactory internal layout with adequate space and daylight, and sufficient external amenity area.
  • The flats will not lead to unacceptable noise disturbance to adjoining properties, and unacceptable overlooking or overshadowing of adjoining properties.
  • The flats will not result in external alterations to the building or its curtilage that would be visually detrimental to or out of character with the local environment.

Did you ever wonder how successful landlords and investors are taking advantage of the booming UK property sector by converting their properties into flats to grow their wealth?

As you probably know, the property cycle has repeated like clockwork for over 450 years, with the only two exceptions being the two world wars. The rental market is also becoming increasingly popular, especially in London and the home counties, where there are high employment rates and a high demand for flats.

Initially it may seem rather daunting to convert a property into studios or flats, but because we’ve prepared many planning drawings for flat conversion projects and dealt with many flat conversion planning applications, we know exactly how to improve your chances of success.
