Tenants

Wooden Floors

The Council’s tenancy agreement allows tenants to carry out works to their homes to make it as comfortable and individual as they wish providing they obtain written permission from Waltham Forest Housing.

If you would like to lay laminate flooring (wooden floors) in your home, you will need to request written permission, before doing so. This permission may be refused if Waltham Forest Housing judges that the laying of wooden flooring may cause a nuisance to neighbours.

We ask that you are mindful of the noise levels within your home and be aware that wooden flooring can create loud acoustic sounds which can cause a nuisance to others. You will need to ensure you have laid insulation underneath the floors.

Do not let children run around late at night and try to minimise any excess noise by laying rugs in areas to break up sounds.
