If you are a shared owner or leaseholder you will usually need our permission to make improvements or alterations to your home. 

You may also need to get permission from your local council or the original builder, if it was not us.

Any improvements or alterations to your home may affect the buildings insurance or the value of your property if you choose to sell it. 

If you want to carry out alteration or improvement works to your home please contact us to discuss this or email homeowner@livewest.co.uk.

There is a fee for providing permission. Please see our Administration Fees.

If you are a freeholder you do not usually need our permission to make improvements or alterations to your home. However, you may need planning or building regulations permission from your local council.
