Loft conversion


Recommended Posts

It's hard to say without knowing the details. Every project is different and has its complexities. The best way to determine whether it is reasonable is to get about 3 or 4 quotes and compare.

I agree you should have three different quotes very detailed covering everything.

My landlord is a property solicitor with a wide range of experiences in the industry and interests in the property market in case you need a further insightful opinion contact me privately with your details and I pass them on.

Hi we got quotes from 4 different people and the prices ranged from 46-80k- same thing for 2 bed and 1 bathroom

We definitely could see that some would be managed better, or designed with a bit more flair

We ended up going with the cheapest one as we knew someone who had used them and were happy- they are solely a loft conversion company so I think it will be a fairly standard job but we can make amendments to the design which will up the cost which will probably bring it up just above 50k (and figured even if there is the odd additional cost we're still comfortable)

Not doing the job until Sept so cant give you much more of a review- but happy to pass on the various companies we got to come by.

The one that came in at 70k was architecturally led and was recommended by a neighbour and their house is GORGEOUS so if you have the money I would really recommend him as he has great designs, will give you lots of design input and also manages the project which does take the pressure off you dealing with the different trades people (but we just couldnt get financially comfortable with the price unfortunately)

I had a one master ensuite loft conversion built into the loft space of my bungalow (Croydon). The team were amazing, very thorough and worked really well with us. I got 3 quotes, went with the cheapest and the most knowledgeable of the 3. We paid ?38000 all in, including architects and building control fees.

We are very happy with them.

    • Probably not, Alice. Never mind
    • I seem to remember it is quite straight forward - you just send them an email explicitly stating you are making a FOI request and who you are and say you want to see all the responses from the consultation. 
    • Vinegar seems to work. A few years ago we had a real fox problem, and I was told human urine is good. Thing is, it smells and seems you need a lot of it. Some vinegar along your perimeter should help. They've hundreds of other gardens to prowl.  
    • I was with TNV up until about a year ago and I had an out of hours emergency. I don’t know what they advise on their voicemail now but back then it was to go to the SLEVC on The High Parade in Streatham. In my panic I heard the message and went to Streatham instead of Camberwell (which is closer to ED) & the experience in Streatham was appalling. Perhaps my pet and I were just very unlucky with the vet on duty that particular night, I don’t know, as I hadn’t been before. But I do know I’ll always regret going to the High Parade clinic in Streatham and will never go near the place with a barge pole ever again. A couple of the nurses were wonderful but the rest was truly dreadful.
