Improvements and alterations

If you're a shared owner or leaseholder you'll need our permission to make improvements or alterations to your home. You may also need to get permission from your local council or the original builder, if it wasn’t us.

Any improvements or alterations to your home may affect the buildings insurance or the value of your property if you choose to sell it. Please contact us with details of the works you wish to carry out.

There is a fee for providing permission. Have a look at additional charges for more information.

If you are a freeholder you do not need our permission to make improvements or alterations to your home. However, you may need planning or building regulations permission from your local council.
