Mansion apartments often have an abundance of space in the roof that isn’t being used by the owners. This means they can offer spacious, highly valuable loft conversion opportunities for the people living inside the building. There can be problems to overcome, especially when seeking to buy these types of loft spaces, but the rewards make it totally worthwhile.
Mansion apartments are beautiful buildings inside and out. Filled with character features, they make charming homes. Their loft spaces are no different, and headroom of 4m isn’t at all unusual. These spaces can make excellent bathrooms, bedrooms, and more. Balconies and terraces can also be possible for many people.
However, there can be many challenges to overcome during the build. These include:
Obtaining landlord permission for the loft conversion
Dealing with tenant committees who may require information and technical data
Using the right types of windows for designated areas such as conservation areas
We have come across all these problems and more. Choose us to work on your mansion apartment loft conversion and benefit from all our experience.
Buying loft space above a mansion apartment
It can be challenging to negotiate the sale of these loft spaces, and it’s a difficult process to go through alone. How do you know if you’ll be able to buy the space? What documentation do you need? Who do you need to liaise with? The Touchstone Lofts team is here to help – we’ve assisted throughout the process for many of our clients who have converted loft space in their apartment block. You will need to consider your lease and may need to buy others out, especially if you already own a share of the freehold. And of course, your building landlord and management company will need to be involved in the whole process.
We work all around London and have helped many flat owners to complete loft conversions above top floor flats. Talk to us – we can make it happen for you.
