Repairs rights and responsibilities

Alterations to your property

If you wish to improve your property at your own cost (such as a new kitchen or extra sockets) you must get our permission first. We may need to inspect the work afterwards to make sure standards have been met.

If you're a council tenant, you should email repairs@southwark.gov.uk to request permission.

If you're a leaseholder, you can find out more information by visiting our making alterations to your home page or apply online.
