Letting Floor Plan

The say a picture paints a thousand words and floor plans enable industries such as estate agents, domestic energy assessors (DEAs), architects, craftsmen, and other designers to quickly create a room, floor or full building outline.

For estate agents, floor plans are an integral part of property marketing; presenting a simple visual to prospective purchasers and tenants.

Indeed, according to the portals, floor plans are essential to all parties in the transaction

  • 1 in 5 buyers suggested they would completely ignore a property advert if it did not have a floor plan
  • Three quarters of sellers wants a floor plan in their property particulars
  • 43% of landlords would not instruct an agent if they did not provide a floor plan

How to get a floor plans

There are 2 main ways to get a floor plan. You can either use a visiting service or do-it-yourself.

Visiting Service

If you are having an EPC done on a orioerty it’s worth asking about floor plans as well… sometimes DEAs will package the two toether and provide both.

Alternatively you can approach a dedicated visiting service who would arrange a suitable time to access the property to draw a floor plan.

Both options incur the additional cost of getting someone else to do it for you.


You can create floor plans yourself. A Metropix subscription offers a draw your own option, or our Autodraw option

The Draw Your Own product is a simple online tool  that lets you create floor plans in minutes with an array of styles and optional upgrades. There’s no need for design qualifications or architectural blueprints… simply outline the property in a sketch and draw it up at the office.
