5 Reasons to Convert a Basement in London

These days it’s tough to find a dream home in London with its limited space and highly competitive property market. Most of the time, moving is not the best option; improvement is the answer.


1. Need More Space


There are cases when adding extra SQ FT on the ground level is not possible; a property located in a conservation area could be an issue when adding a side return or rear extension.


If you or your family is desperate for more space, let it be an extra bedroom, bathroom or leisure room, converting a basement is a perfect solution.


2. Growing Family


If your future plans include starting a family or having more children, but your home is no longer suitable for your growing family, convert your basement. This is an investment that will lift the stress of house scouting and moving.


3. No Need to Say Goodbye to Your Garden


If you need more space but you love your garden, we have good news. Digging a basement is more efficient than extending your property to the ground level. You can convert a basement as big as the footprint of your property without losing any of your precious garden space.


4. Cheaper than Moving


London is the most expensive place to move house in the UK. The average cost of moving in London is about £27,946, whilst the average cost of creating a basement is between £500-£750 per square metre.
