BUYING A BUNGALOW: THE LOWDOWN
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.
