Residents ask us what decorating and small DIY jobs they are able to do around their home during their tenancy.

The answer is that you can do most thing as long as you:

  • don't have an Assured Shorthold Tenancy
  • get our permission first
  • make sure any work is completed by a fully registered contractor

You'll need to contact your neighbourhood services officer to get permission or you can contact L&Q Direct.

Please see your L&Q tenancy agreement for more information and details of any specific rules about what you can and cannot do.
