Planning Permissions – Sidcup, Kent
In some cases, doing little but the right things can really pay off. This was the case for a property in Sidcup. The client did not have a big budget and needed to sell their property quickly as well as achieving a higher price than the estate agents were valuing the property in its current state. Our task was to advise the clients options on how to achieve their goals. We advised on the types of extensions that could benefit the value of the property. In this case it was to extend out to the side on the first floor (chalet style house) and extend out to the rear. We also provided advice on the type of low cost potential changes that could be made to the house which could help with the sale e.g. flooring, painting etc. JAGMA successfully obtained planning permission to do all the work outlined, as well as advising on what elements to change/refurbish.
The client took JAGMA’s advice and was now in a position to be able to market the house with the new updated mainly cosmetic changes and planning permission granted to extend as described above. The client was able to sell their property within one week of being on the market. They achieved in excess of £50,000 more than the estate agent original valuation.
Single Story Rear Extension – Chislehurst, Kent
The client of this four bedroom terraced town house in Chislehurst wanted to add value and have additional options for the house without spending too much money. JAGMA suggested that a single story extension could open up a number of options for the house.
The current kitchen which is on the first floor could be relocated to the ground floor, creating a large open plan living area upstairs. Alternatively, the new extension downstairs could provide standalone accommodation similar to an annex. The single story extension could provide a bedroom and a large kitchen diner. The client decided to leave his options open and go for planning permission.
JAGMA successfully obtained the required planning permission to build a single story rear extension. The client achieved significant additional value to the house and had three years if desired to start the build. The client opted to let the property for a year while deciding whether to sell the higher valued house or proceed with building the extension.
