Carrying out your own improvements

Being a leaseholder does not necessarily mean that you can do whatever you want in and with your flat.  Your lease comes with conditions and one of those conditions is that you cannot carry out any alterations or add anything to your property without our permission in writing.

You may have problems selling your property if you have made any alterations without our permission, and it could be expensive if you have to get permission after you have already done the work.

We have a legal right to put right or undo any work you have undertaken without permission from us and restore the property to it’s original condition, and to charge you the entire costs for doing so.

You should always write to us for permission and give us details of the work you are going to carry out.
We have the right to inspect any work you do carry out.
