Why Sell Your Property When You Can Just Extend It

If you have owned your property for a considerable amount of time you can grow a little bored of the place and also find space harder and harder to come by. Moving to a brand new house is of course an option, but it’s a very financially and physically demanding option that you have to be fully committed to.

Relocating is an expensive business. These are some of the costs you may have to contend with:

  • Stamp duty – When buying a home in England or Northern Ireland costing more than £125,000, you have to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax.


  • Deposit – You will have to put down a decent deposit on the property.


  • Valuation fee – This is a charge imposed by the mortgage lender that values the property.


  • Surveyor’s fee – This is a charge imposed by the surveyor that inspects the property.


  • Legal fees – This is a charge imposed by the solicitor or licensed conveyor that handles all the legal work involved in buying and selling a property.


  • Removal fees – You will have to pay a removals firm to transport your belongings to your new property.

To add to that last point, you will also have to go to the effort of preparing your possessions for your moving day.

With all that in mind, it would be far easier, and far less expensive, to extend, and in the process, revitalise your current home with the installation of a glass extension.

Hazlemere has a wide variety of extensions you can pick from, including these two hugely exciting possibilities…


The Loggia is the world’s newest conservatory design, and arguably, the most spectacular conservatory ever seen.

Several of Britain’s best engineers and Italy’s finest designers collaborated together to create the Loggia (a word that translates as “lodge”), a structure that dates back to the Italian Renaissance Period. It is characterised by its beautifully ornate corner columns, plastered ceiling and expansive glass roof.

Glass-To-Floor Conservatory

When you want more glass than you get in a standard conservatory design, opt for a glass-to-floor conservatory as it omits the usual brick wall to accommodate a higher volume of glazing.

These glazed sections span from the base of the extension right up to where the glass roof takes over. You will appreciate a glass-to-floor conservatory if you want the best possible view of your garden.


More home extensions are available at Hazlemere, but you’re much better seeing them, than just reading about them. Call into your nearest Hazlemere showroom to see why you should put all thoughts of moving right to the back of your mind and concentrate on improving your existing home.
