We know that many people like to make alterations and improvements to their homes to suit the needs of their household that we can't fund.  So that we can ensure that these improvements don't cause problems in the future, we do ask you to get written permission before stating any alteration.

When we give permission, we may set certain conditions, which you must keep to when you carry out the work. If you start work without our permission, you may have to put the property back into its original condition at your own cost.  If you do not, we may do the work and you will be recharged.

We will not usually refuse to give you permission to carry out alterations or improvements, unless completing them will make it harder for us to maintain the property, will adversely affect your neighbours or make the property unsafe.

If you live in a flat in a three-storey block or a high-rise block we may also require a certificate on completion of the work from a FIRAS accredited inspector to show that fire safety in the block has not been breached, if required.

To get approval for any alterations or improvements, you just need to complete a Customer Alteration Form in Section A of this document and return the completed form to us.
