Selling House With Loft Conversion
By taking some important steps, you can improve the chances of quickly selling your house with a loft conversion.
Your top questions when selling a house with a loft conversion
✅ What is the purpose behind converting the loft at my house?
Loft conversions can be a useful way to create more living space in your house, because it takes an area that is typically either not used at all or only used for storage and then converts that into an extra bedroom, bathroom, children’s play area, home office or other room. Some people pursue loft conversions with the goal of making their home more valuable to sell.
✅ How much could a loft conversion change the value of my property?
The exact impact that a loft conversion will have on the potential value and sale price of your leasehold or freehold house depends on a number of factors, but some estimates suggest that a decent conversion at a conventional home could add roughly 20 percent to your property’s potential sale price – but beware that your conversion might add much less value.
✅ I can't finish my loft conversion before selling, will I still be able to get a buyer?
Yes, just because your loft conversion is half-finished does not mean you will never be able to sell the property. There are many reasons why you might have to pause the work before trying to find a buyer for the house, including financial difficulties. If that’s your situation, contact a quick home buyer because they have plenty of experience with buying half-finished properties.
✅ Will I be required to pay Capital Gains Tax on the sale of my house?
You might be liable for paying Capital Gains Tax and if so, it might apply to the profit that you make from the sale of the property. There are certain ways that you can eliminate or substantially reduce how much tax you owe, so ask a financial expert for their advice.
✅ What is the fastest way to sell my house with a loft conversion?
Getting in touch with a quick home buying company like LDN Properties will usually be the swiftest way to sell your leasehold or freehold house, because the entire process should only take a few short weeks. That’s much faster than the average timeline when selling on your own, via an estate or at an auction, because they can all take at least several months.
✅ Are there any property selling methods that don't include fees?
Yes, if you sell your house without any assistance from a third party or you sell to a quick home buyer then you won’t have to pay fees. However, if you sell through an auctioneer or estate agent then this will add to your overall selling expenses because they will charge you commission if they find a buyer, and this fee will be deducted from the sale proceeds.
✅ How do I know that I can trust a quick buyer when selling my house?
Honest quick buyers like LDN Properties belong to a third party organisation called The Property Ombudsman (TPO), which writes regulations that protect homeowners from falling victim to fraud in the fast buying industry. Ask individual companies whether they belong to TPO, because legitimate membership in the organisation could give you peace of mind.
