Description

Residential property prices have risen dramatically over the years yet there are thousands of dilapidated and unused buildings which can present a much cheaper way of acquiring a home.This title, extensively illustrated with colour photos, examines every aspect of converting types of redundant property including: surveys; legislation and regulations; planning applications; professional help and advice; and finance, budgeting and insurance. It discusses aspects such as: evaluation and preparation of plans; briefing of professional consultants; design and location of various living spaces; external features; lighting, heating, ventilation, mains services, energy conservation and acoustics. Guides the reader through tenders, contracts, specifications, quotations, choosing builders, planning the project, timetables and on-site operations. Includes a number of case studies which demonstrate what can be achieved with different types of property.
