Loft boarding for storage in a rented property
In most cases if your rent a property, privately or through a social housing scheme, you will definitely require written permission before any work can go ahead. In some cases the landlord or association may require a full breakdown from us of what you intend to have done and for what purpose.
Unfortunately there is no way around this, as it would be breaking your tenancy with your landlord or association for failing to inform them of the intended work (classed as building work), and they will demand it to be removed at your expense.
If you are renting a property its always best to seek advice from your landlord/association before going ahead, a simple letter of consent from them is all we require so we can proceed and give them the desired information (copy of quotes and survey) if required.
Once we have approval, we will then proceed with a survey and to install your loft boarding solution.
Please be aware that not informing your landlord or association of intended work in your loft could be seen as a breech of your tenancy agreement and may have serious consequences.
