Letter seeking landlord’s consent to alter residential premises

Residential Tenant’s Request for Consent to Make Alterations

PROP.RO.07
This Residential Tenant’s Request for Consent to Make Alterations is a template letter for a tenant to send to the landlord asking for consent to make alterations to residential property.

Tenancy agreements will usually either prohibit the making of alterations altogether or require the tenant to obtain the landlord’s consent to any proposed alterations. If the landlord is willing to allow the alterations his consent will be given by way of a letter setting out what is permitted and any conditions that apply.

When making a request for consent to alter, the tenant should provide plans, specifications and drawings showing the proposed works. If any third party consents are required, e.g. planning permission or building control approval, copies of the consents and/or the tenant’s application for consent should be provided to the landlord. It may also be helpful to provide references for any contractor the tenant is proposing to engage.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.

This Residential Tenant’s Request for Consent to Make Alterations is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
