Improvements to your home

If we have identified that your home needs improvement works we will write to you letting you know what’s needed.

Examples of the kind of works we carry out include:

  • Central heating
  • Electrical
  • Kitchens
  • Bathrooms
  • Roofing
  • Environmental improvements
  • Low rise blocks
  • Windows and doors
  • Cyclical

We will carry out a survey before we begin any work on your home. This will help to identify exactly what improvements are needed and make sure we achieve the high standards we aim for, as set out by the Government.

We will let you know when we plan to carry out the work and appoint an approved contractor.

Make your own improvements to your home

If you want to make your own improvements you will need to contact us first. This will help to make sure that the improvements are allowed and that it is safe for you to carry them out.

To make sure you're not at risk, we will always check for asbestos before approving any home improvement works. This may be a simple search through our records, or could include a new survey.

Remember, if you carry out work on your home without permission you could put yourself and those living around you at risk, for example, releasing asbestos fibres.
