to get on property ladder me and partner have bought a 1930's bungelow thats in desperate need of renovation. roof is sagging. there are various flat roof extensions to property down one side. our plan is to extend and raise the roof by about 1m and make into a two storey. floor space of property is about 100m2.

however we have just dug down to look at footings and not sure if building regs will consider them good enough to build upwards.

if foundations are good how much will this roughly cost to do the roof and loft conversion.

and if property needs underpinning how much would that be?

i am admittedly a complete novice to renovation and have taken on something i'm not really sure of and just want a rough price to go on for when i get builders quotes.
