BUY­ING A BUN­GA­LOW: THE LOW­DOWN

Yorkshire Post - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

Find­ing a bun­ga­low couldn’t be eas­ier thanks to prop­erty por­tals that al­low you to nar­row down your search. Rightmove has a bun­ga­low op­tion in its search cri­te­ria.

You should also make friends with lo­cal es­tate agents and ask them to no­tify you when some­thing suit­able comes for sale.

Buy a bun­ga­low that has scope for a loft con­ver­sion and you may not need plan­ning per­mis­sion. Most con­ver­sions are con­sid­ered per­mit­ted de­vel­op­ment. Visit www. plan­ning­por­tal.gov.uk

En­quire about the pos­si­bil­ity of any other ex­ten­sions with the lo­cal coun­cil plan­ning depart­ment be­fore you buy, or you may be dis­ap­pointed.
