Home Improvements & Adaptions

Under the terms of your Tenancy you’ll need our permission to carry out improvements or alterations.

Apart from decorating, all improvements need our permission. So before you do anything, we ask that you contact us.

If you make improvements or alterations without permission then we may ask you to return the property to the original condition it was let to you.

If this is not done then BHA may recharge you the cost of returning the property to it’s original condition.

Making your own improvements

As one of our tenants, we want to make sure any improvements you make to your home are good quality.

Just like any repair or improvement, the quality of the workmanship and materials are important.

You’re free to choose paints and wallpapers to decorate your home to your own taste and you don’t need our permission for this.

However if you want to make other improvements to your home (e.g. installing a new kitchen, bathroom or conservatory) then you’ll need our permission.

To get our permission for home improvements you must give us written details about the following:

  • What the work will involve
  • Who’ll be carrying out the work and information on the contractor
  • How much it will cost.

We’ll need as much information as possible as we may need to carry out an inspection of your home. We also need to look at our own plans for your home.

If you would like to apply for permission to make an improvement or adaption to your home, please download our application form, complete it and return it to us along with any supporting plans or documents.
