Video Viewings and Valuations

Covid Lockdown Statement – January 2021

Following the recent Covid announcement by the Government and in the interests of keeping our colleagues, clients, contacts and all of their families safe, we have decided to close our offices to the general public with effect from 9am, 5th January 2021.
Please note the business will continue to remain fully open and operational with staff working remotely from home using the same contact numbers and email addresses with full access to our systems. If you require a face-to-face Covid Safe meeting in our #Ripon or #Thirsk office, please contact us to make an appointment.
We have access to technology to provide video viewings and valuations of your property through the The Guild of Property Professionals, along with video calling to enable meetings and appointments to go ahead as required.
We ask in the first instance that a Virtual Video Viewing or call takes place prior to an actual in-person viewing. Following this, cash purchasers, First Time Buyers and applicants whose own property is Sold Subject to Contract are welcome to arrange a viewing of a property by contacting one of our offices.

Survey and Architecture appointments, face-to-face meetings, market appraisals or viewings will only take place where we have established that the parties involved are not suffering from any Coronavirus symptoms, have been advised to self-isolate or have travelled outside the UK to any country on the quarantine list. We ask you to consider whether your appointment with ourselves involves Essential Travel.
We are all facing a tough challenge over the coming weeks, the housing market remains open. We will continue to work hard and provide our full services, and hope that we will return to normal business as soon as practicably possible and it is safe to do so. We wish and hope everyone stays fit and healthy.

Loft conversion in North Yorkshire

Our design team have enjoyed working on another new project this week. This has involved carrying out a measured survey, creating existing drawings and producing design ideas for a proposed loft conversion and internal alterations to a beautiful period property. We were already familiar with the property as we sold the property to our clients, through our estate agency in Ripon.

We have submitted a planning application to create an additional bedroom in the roof space, with two traditional dormers to the rear. A building regulation drawing has also been produced to allow contractors to provide estimated costings for the project, with the view to starting work as soon as planning and building regulation approvals have been granted.

Planning – Approved

Great news from our architectural team.

Joplings has received planning approval for a rear dormer extension in Northallerton Conservation Area. After discussions with the Local Authority, we were able to design a scheme to create an additional bedroom and shower room for our client.

Please contact us on 01845 521319 to discuss your scheme.
