What is a rear extension?
A rear house extension is a conversion that is constructed outwards from the back of your property. Mostly this will be built and extend into your garden area, but it can also become part of an existing building on site or even to have its own separate entrance. The total cost for such conversions depends largely upon what kind you want to undertake; whether you're creating one large space with multiple rooms or dividing up different parts like studio apartments in Derby (UK). Factors to take into consideration also include how big the project might be, professional costs involved during construction, which will including material quality as well as which specific services are included, and what you plan to use it for afterward too.
Do I need planning permission for my rear house extension?
Planning permission is important for all extensions and additions to a home, but in some cases it can be obtained without any hassle by using your right of Permitted Development.
Planning permission may not always be necessary when considering an extension or addition to one's house. If this circumstance applies then you avoid the need for permits from planning authorities as well as applications submitted on behalf of development-related matters with that authority; however there are limits and criteria which must still apply if these rights are being exercised. You will still need to adhere to building regulations.

It could produce a room for a specific need or extend one of your existing rooms downstairs on the ground level.

You also have the added benefit of adding some substantial value to your home and improve the quality of your life in the process.
