I have just bought a large freehold flat which is basically the first floor of a converted semi detached house.
I own the rights to the large loft space and wondered if anyone has any experience of whether I would get planning permission to build a self contained flat in the loft?
The property is in North London and 2 minutes walk to a rail station. The flat will not have the possibility of a parking space as my flat has the only available space and the other parking space is for the ground floor flat and he has 2 parking spaces. The road has other properties where flats in the loft have been created although from my search it seems that was some years back.
My flat had successfully received planning permission for a flat in the roof but this was 20 years ago but the previous owners did not build a flat at that time. I look forward to any experiences others have had as I guess many investors must have found themselves in this situation.
