What are the important loft conversion considerations for rental properties?

There a number of considerations to take into account when planning and installing a lift conversion for a rental property. These include:
  • The legal considerations-from planning permission to fire safety there are a number of legal permissions and obligations that you will need to meet. These fire safety regulations for example are essential for turning your loft conversion into a usable additional bedroom.
  • The decor and design- if you want to leave the purpose of the room up to your tenants, a neutral decor will be very beneficial so that they can see the potential of the space and imagine their own possessions in the space. However if your rental property is available as fully furnished you will need to decide on the purpose of the space and decorate this accordingly. Neutral colours can still be a good option, and light colours in the loft conversion can really help to accentuate the natural light available and create a bright, clean space.
