The Council has a duty to consider requests for alterations from leaseholders. Landlord’s written consent to alterations must be given by Tower Hamlets Council.
If your proposal is accepted you will usually receive a conditional consent letter. This will set out a number of conditions which you must fulfil before formal written consent is provided. Please note you must seek this written provisional consent from THH before approaching the Planning Department or Building Control. Without the formal written consent of THH you will be in breach of your lease and if you carry out unauthorised alterations you may be asked to put the property back to its original condition. The Council may also take legal action against you.
