Floor plans help you (and your mortgage valuer) to compare prices more objectively by highlighting the full size of the property. Buyers can calculate the cost per square foot or meter and see how it relates to other homes for sale in the same neighbourhood.

Plans allow you to glance at the existing layout and orientation of the building. But they also help you to assess whether a home has development potential. A good floor plan will use thick lines for external and likely supporting walls, with thinner lines used to delineate possible partitions. Just be sure to contact a professional surveyor before you start knocking down walls.

The drawings may also reveal a building’s history. Compare the proportions of all the rooms. Is one much larger than the rest? If so, it could be an extension. Is there a cluster of tiny rooms in an otherwise large house? Maybe a wing of the house was carved up into a granny flat.

Measuring a room, or key pieces of furniture, in your own home will help you to get a feel for sizes and help you to visualize the floor plan more effectively. If you are selling as well as buying, studying the floor plan of your existing home will help you to compare properties.

Beware of dead space. Measurements are taken from the inside of all external walls, including all stairs and built-in cupboards. A 2,000sq ft (186sq m) house spread over five floors would feel smaller than a flat of the same size, even though both would be roughly the same size as seven double-decker buses.

Before the Properties Misdescriptions Act 1991, estate agents did all the measuring up themselves. However, fear of being fined for mistakes has prompted more agents to outsource this job to 3rd Party companies providing floor plans
