Permitted development rights are a national grant of planning permission which allow certain building works and repurposing of spaces to be carried out without having to make a planning application.
Permitted development rights are subject to conditions and limitations to control impact and to protect local amenity. We have helped many clients to explore the full opportunities that exists with the property they are selling or indeed buying.
At Humberts Living we will show you what you are entitled to do without the need for full planning permission. Permitted development only applies to houses and there may also be exceptions if you live in a listed building or in a conservation area. If you have had building work carried out in the past you may have used up some or all of the rights to permitted development.
The first stage is to engage Humberts Living to guide you through the process either if you are selling or looking at the potential of your new home. Like planning permission permitted development is regulated through your local planning authority so it is important that you consult with Humberts Living as we will make sure your plans are compliant before any work is commenced and consider applying for a lawful development certificate.
We would recommend that if you intend to use your permitted development rights that you obtain a lawful development certificate as this will ensure that your building work is compliant and will prevent any delays when you come to sell your home in the future.
Humberts Living will support you throughout the journey with a comprehensive suite of services for the homeowner. Regardless if you are staying put and want to improve your home, selling and want to maximise its value and saleability or want advice on a property you are thinking of buying we will be with you every step of the way.
