Since 2011, there has been a distinct rise in planning applications put forward each year for subterranean extensions. The trend has seen wealthy home owners dig downwards in order to create more space for their premises in which to fit saunas, swimming pools, gyms, cinemas and wine cellars within their properties.

Structural warranty insurance for basement renovations

A whopping 800 applications have been made for basement extensions in the Kensington and Chelsea areas alone, many of which have been passed without hesitation from planning officers.

It is not all plain sailing as far as basement extensions are concerned. The process comes with a degree of risk and in many cases, vast expense. Some cases prove to be more expensive than others. Earlier this year, a £3.5million London townhouse owned by Ex Phones4U boss collapsed after caving in whilst developers were part-way through works to create an extensive basement designed to accommodate a cinema, a wine room and gym.

The basement of the Georgian property in West London was in the process of being renovated when it collapsed causing the property to be reduced to rubble. Luckily no-one was injured during the building collapse.
