While a loft conversion could cost you upwards of £20,000, doing so could add up to £45,000 to the value of your property.
You Need Planning Permission In Hampshire
If you plan on extending beyond the limits and conditions of your property or if it is listed or located in a conservation area, then you will need to apply for planning permission. Deciding to convert your loft requires careful consideration of your roof structure, heating and insulation. Most loft conversions can be done under permitted development rights, which allow the improvement and extension of homes, under certain restrictions.
If your conversion does need planning permission, get your application in early to avoid delaying work. If your loft doesn't have enough headroom for the conversion then the roof will need to be raised or the floor below lowered.
