Landlords permission for repairs
You must get permission from Waltham
Forest Housing (Landlord’s permission) in writing before you
carry out work to repair, maintain or alter anything that we are
responsible for (such as replacing windows or painting the outside
of your flat) You must also ask our permission if you want to carry
out work that could cause damage to or affect the appearance of the
building such as erecting a satellite dish. We will not withhold
permission unreasonably. If you don’t get our permission we may
tell you to return your home to the condition it was in before you
carried out the work.
You are not allowed to carry out any work that
would require planning consent (Planning Permission) from Waltham
Forest Council. Any work you carry out must also meet building
You should also contact Ascham
Homes for advice before you replace your front door. This is
because fire regulations say that your front door must be able to
withstand fire for at least 30 minutes, to protect both yourselves
and your neighbours.
