Making Changes to Your Home
Should you wish to make alterations or improvements to your home, you must apply for permission before having any work carried out.
If you wish to make alterations or improvements to your home, you are required to apply to the Association for permission to have this work carried out.
How do I apply?
To submit a request you will have to fill in our Alterations and Improvements Application Form. Please print, complete and return this form to our office. If you do not have access to a printer, we would be happy to provide you with an application form. Just come by our office within our opening hours (scroll to the bottom of the page to see opening hours)
What happens next?
Once we receive your request, we have 28 days to consider your request and respond to you. Before the 28 days have passed we will either confirm that permission has been granted or advise why permission cannot be granted.
Some works may require a Building Warrant and/or Planning Permission and it is your responsibility to apply for this if necessary.
If you wish to discuss this, you can contact West Lothian Council on 01506 280000
You may be entitled to compensation
If you carry out improvements or alterations, you may be entitled to compensation at the end of your tenancy. Therefore, you must hold on to any receipts, as these will be needed should you be entitled to compensation in accordance with the scheme.
