Now that the building of flats on top of many existing buildings can be achieved under permitted development rights, this kind of development is becoming more and more popular.

However, there are many complex issues affecting this type of development, which this webinar will focus on.

  • Party walls
  • Overage - when selling a building that has the potential for roof space development, don't forget to reserve overage for your client - what is the best way to secure this?
