Below are some of the services we carry out here at Change The Use

Commercial to Residential Conversion

With the property market flooded with commercial property & more importantly vacant commercial property, now is the perfect time to convert to residential.

Whether the property is fully converted to a residential planning use or a partial mixed use development, market values dramatically rise by obtaining permission for residential usages.

Government incentives such as permitted development could allow you to bypass the full planning application process & convert a B1 commercial property with relative ease.

This alleviates some restrictions which may be attached to a full planning application and can mean conversion to residential use is a relatively straight forward procedure.

Take a look at our case studies which show how we helped a client convert a B1 office into residential by utilising permitted development rights.

Vacant Property Conversion

With the evolution of technology and internet businesses, more & more vacant property is sadly appearing up and down the country. This is bad for many reasons as it provides unsightly buildings falling into disrepair & also financial difficulty for property owners. Not to mention the problems agents face in trying to let or sell a property due to the vast quantity on the market.

To combat this & to inject vibrant property back into towns & cities, changing a properties use can rejuvenate a stale asset & turn it into something immediately marketable.
