An increasing number of homeowners across London and the UK are choosing to extend their existing properties. One of the main reasons is cost. Remember that the cost of moving home includes Estate Agent fees, Stamp Duty, legal fees, removal fees and of course, the cost of buying the house itself!
When you consider these costs, it is far more cost-effective to extend your existing property then to make the huge financial commitment of moving to a new home.
Moving home can also be very stressful. In most cases, if you are having your loft converted, or if you are extending your house, then you will not be required to move out during the construction stage.
