Home Improvements

Improvements you can make to your home

You have the right to improve your home and in most cases, you do not need to tell us about this (such as decorating) If you are considering larger improvements such as replacement kitchens, bathrooms, internal doors or any other changes to the structure of the building, you will need to talk to us first. You will find the necessary application forms on MYaccount or you can talk to your Neighbourhood Officer who will explain what the process is and the implications if you leave your tenancy.

Improvements we will make to your home

Our planned improvement programme and planned cyclical maintenance programme carries out improvements to a number of homes at the same time in an agreed neighbourhood. This helps us to reduce disruption and work more quickly and efficiently.

Planned improvements include replacement windows & doors, roof replacement, property adaptions and kitchen and bathroom modernisation.

Planned cyclical maintenance include internal communal decorations, external painting, cleaning uPVC windows, doors & gutters and electrical testing.

You can find details of when your home is due to have planned cyclical maintenance work carried out by visiting the MYPlanned Maintenance section in MYaccount.

We will make sure you are contacted in advance to let you when we are planning to carry out work to your home.

We also maintain communal gardens, green open spaces and play areas with regular grounds maintenance work such as grass cutting & shrub bed or tree care. You can view our service standards in the Cleaning and Grounds maintenance of communal areas booklet which can be found in the Information & Advice section of this website
