Gaining permission from the local authority

For refurbishments involving major structural change an application for planning permission may need to be required. New laws in place at present state that planning permission is not required if the proposed project is to be a single storey and not more than 50% of your rear garden. If this is not the case then Following submission for approval we apply for planning permission.

If you are planning a larger extension then Acorn Building Solutions are very experienced in obtaining permission from local authorities. We use expert architects help design and draw the planned extension taking into account the surrounding properties as to provide the best chance in obtaining successful planning permission. Our Architect will provide you with a full copy of the planning drawings for your perusal. No drawings will be submitted to the local authority until you have confirmed they meet your specification.

Every extension we plan and build must adhere to current building regulations, our team are fully experienced in all elements of safety and there should not be any issues surrounding the building regulations for your project.

  • Planning your Property Refurbishment to Get That Bargain Property

    When seeking a dated property in order to refurbish either to be a family home or to sell on at a profit Acorn Building Solutions recommend you do your homework. It is essential that you perform your own market research. Arrange viewings of similar properties and document the asking prices and the duration they were on the market before selling.

    Unlike common TV programmes property deals are not easy to find. Typically you should be looking towards achieving a 20% profit margin which can allow for unforeseen problems that might occur.

    Make sure you contact all the local agents and inform them of what you are looking for and make sure they add you to their mailing list, if they suggest a property that does not meet your requirements be sure to explain why so they can try to find a better suggestion next time.

    Architect Drawings

    Once you have found your ideal property to refurbish act quickly, there are lots of people who have taken to property development and if you hesitate another person will snap up the bargain. If you are planning on making a career of property refurbishment then be sure to say thank you to the agent who found the property for you. Estate agents are not permitted to accept finder’s fees, but a nice bottle of wine as a thank you might ensure any other bargain property details come your way.

    When it comes to funding a property in need of refurbishment or one that is inhabitable you may struggle to find a mortgage provider willing to lend to you, in this instance you may have to buy with cash or by using a bridging loan until a mortgage provider will lend to you or you sell the property. If you do secure a mortgage then make sure there are no early repayment charges within the mortgage contract if you are planning on selling the property once refurbished.
