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 regulations.

 

Front doors

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.
