You must get written permission from
us first before doing any work. This includes:
- Satellite dishes
- CB aerials
- Pigeon lofts
We want you to enjoy living in one of our homes - so we won't
say no to home improvements unless we have a good reason. You'll be
responsible for any future repairs to these improvements.
If you don't get our written permission we may ask you to return
the property to its original state. You'll have to pay for this
work. We could ask for a court order to evict you if you
If you have or suspect asbestos materials in your home, extra
care should be taken when doing DIY. Download our asbestos in the home
factsheet (pdf, 1.65kb) for more information.
Made improvements and want to move
You may be entitled to compensation at the end of your tenancy.
This depends on the type of home improvements plus some other
criteria. We'll pay any compensation at the end of your tenancy -
after taking any money you owe us first. Contact the customer
service centre to discuss further.
Can I get help to adapt my home?
If you need aids or adaptations to your home because you're
elderly or have a long-term disability, we'll do everything we can
to ensure this happens. We do this under the Disability
Discrimination Act 1995.
