Landlord and Tenant Alterations

At some stage, you will inevitably want to carry out some works to your property. If they are basic works, the likelihood is that you will not need permission for this, although that is not true for all cases. If you are thinking of something more substantial, then you will invariably need permission from the landlord.

This is quite separate from the permission and approval you will need from the Council’s Planning Department and Building Control.

The terms of your lease will tell you what you can and cannot do, and you need to ensure that the landlord approves many types of works, particularly renovation works. We can do as much or as little for you as you want, from simple advice to dealing with landlords and neighbours.

We will check the terms of your lease and advise you on the best course. If you do not need permission, then you may do the works, but if you do need permission we can organise and make the necessary application for you. We will work along side the architect and or surveyor as required, steering the process as necessary.

If you have any questions about alterations, contact us to explain your individual circumstances and one of our  alterations solicitors Kings Cross, London can organise the next steps with you.
