Undertaking a Property Renovation?

Property renovation has become big business in the UK thanks to long standing programs like Homes Under the Hammer, so if you too are dipping your toe in the property renovation pond, here are some things to consider.

1. The right property for you
Ensuring the property you buy is right for you is the number one factor to a successful property renovation. Rule number one for buying from an auction is to view the property first! You can then assess the building and ensure location is viable for you to undertake the work before committing to the purchase.

2. Renovation Insurance
Now the contract for the project is yours, you are responsible for the site and everything happening within it and require insurance. If you have a mortgage to fund the project, proof of insurance may be necessary before funds are released to you.

3. Schedule to the second
Although many projects do run over their timeframe, it is important to plan your time as best you can to ensure the design is carried out smoothly. The order of your schedule can help fix crucial building errors early before they become a bigger issue later in the project.

4. Repair existing features
Charming original features are often uncovered when a property is stripped back. Repairing and restoring these can add extra value to a home as well as add a beautiful and often unique design feature.

Extend or sell?

Working with your local building specialist it’s possible to increase your available space and add value to your home at the same time. People like the Land Registry, Office for National Statistics, Hamptons Estate Agents and a study of Energy Efficiency Certificates reveal that in the majority of cases an extension increases the value of your home by more than the cost.

New Housing funding

The Energy Saving Trust is suggesting that when planning a new extension or renovation thought should be given to improving the energy efficiency of their homes.

Taking the opportunity to add extra insulation or draught proofing will pay for itself in the long term and create a more comfortable environment. Most people complain that they don’t have enough storage in their home or there are rooms that are too cold to use without additional heating.

All these problems can be addressed by sitting down with your builder when planning your project. By employing a competent, experienced firm to carry out the work you will benefit from their practical experience and advice.
