If you’re a landlord, expanding a rental property is a great way to increase its market value while maximising your monthly rental income, especially in London. Loft conversions can add at least 20% more space and hundreds of thousands of pounds to the value of your property.
While London landlords understand the benefits of a loft conversion, the cost and inconvenience of a tenantless property for 12 weeks is not something many can afford. With offsite built modular lofts, which take as little as 14 days to install, your tenants can continue living at the property while the work is done, saving you time, money and hassle.
A double bedroom with an en suite can have a dramatic impact on your rental income – in Greenwich, for example, you could earn up to £1,200 extra per month – offsetting the cost of the conversion.
Precision-engineered by experts, offsite built modular lofts don’t flex after installation like an ordinary timber-framed conversion. They’re made from light gauge steel in our Yorkshire factory, and delivered to site in modules. This means you avoid timber warping, which can lead to additional decorative work, giving you peace of mind that once it’s done, it’s done. And with a brand-new roof included, you’ll be further increasing the value of your property.
A loft conversion can be part of a wider renovation – improving the overall layout of the property. In London, where space and privacy are at a premium, prospective renters will pay extra to have a whole floor and private bathroom to themselves. Alternatively, you could convert the space into two smaller bedrooms to make space for more tenants.
It’s not just houses that give landlords the option of a loft conversion. If you own a top-floor flat that includes the roof space, you could transform it into a large two-floor home as well, widening its appeal to renters.
