Many residential properties are altered and extended during their life, and it is often more economical to extend or alter an existing property than to build another one.
Typical alterations include loft conversions, one or two storey side additions, rear additions, basement extensions and adaptations for the disabled/infirm. All these are possible subject to the usual "obstacles" of planning, building regulations and party walls, and also time and availability of sufficient funds by the client.

Leys Longden and Co routinely submits planning applications for alterations and extension to homes, including for Grade 2 listed buildings.

Building Regulations

We routinely submit for Building Regulation consent, typically after Planning has been received, to confirm compliance with the Building Regulations.

Project Management / Contract Administration

In most instances we are retained by clients requiring Planning and Building Regulations, to assist oversee the build process.
This involves writing the Specification of Works ; obtaining estimates from contractors and identifying the most appropriate contractor; monitoring their work on site; agreeing interim valuations; settling the final account and finally ensuring the statutory paperwork is obtained once the building works are complete.

Leys Longden & Co is an independent practice of Chartered Building Surveyors based in Oxfordshire, serving residential clients in Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire and commercial clients countrywide with an emphasis on Oxfordshire, London and the South East.
