Guide to Wandsworth Home Extensions
It is difficult to know where to start when planning a home extension, so here are some key questions you need to consider:
- Is my property located in a Wandsworth conservation area? So you need to check for any special regulations or Article 4 Directions. Wandsworth has 45 conservation areas which vary in size and character from a short street such as Deodar Road to a large area such as West Putney. Lifestyle can assist and advice you in relation to these issues.
Do I need an architect?-
A large building project such as a Wandsworth House Extension can be stressful to undertake and coordinate. You can achieve the best results by using an architect or structural engineer to draw up the plans and use a reputable building company to process the project. Make sure your building company is registered with a professional association such as the federation of master builders which requires strict standards of quality and best practices. Lifestyle as a company can offer you all the above.
Checklist for planning your Wandsworth Extension
: consider your budget, allow contingency for any changes. Get like-for-like quotes from builders.
: It's always best to check with Wandsworth Council to identitfy specific planning, conservation and Article 4 Directions. Some properties won't require planning permission. If required, applications need to be submitted for approval via Wandsworth Council or online. Planning permission also takes into account the impact on the environment, neighbours and community including asthetics such as skylines, continuity of building materials and architectural integrity.
: Building regulations outline the legal requirements for the safety of newly built house extensions. Again a reputable building company will be conversant and arrange the necessary building approvals.
: A written consent is required before starting work if you share a wall or boundary.
Choosing a Building company
: A reputable building company should have premises, be a member of a professional association (e.g. FMB) and be insured. Always ask for client testimonials and examples of previous work to back up their credentials. A professional building company will be happy to provide you with these details.
