Altering Your Home

If you want to make changes to your home, you must get permission from us first.

Things that need permission can include:

  • floor surfaces other than carpet
  • central heating
  • fitting a shower
  • putting up a shed or building a garage.

You must complete a Tenant Alteration Form

Following the recent lockdowns caused by COVID-19, we are facing an unprecedented number of applications for tenant applications, which has led to a backlog. We are currently experiencing delays, which means that there is a time frame of three to four months to review and process applications. Our dedicated team are working as fast as they can, whilst conducting due diligence. We will respond to every application as soon as we possibly can.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during these times.
