4. Right to compensation for improvements

This information only applies if you have a secure tenancy agreement

Under government legislation, at the end of your tenancy, you have the right to claim compensation from us for improvements you have made to your home with our consent.

Evidence of your costs will help us assess the level of compensation you may be entitled to.

You can only apply for compensation for certain kinds of improvement (for example, bathroom improvements) that started on or after 1 April 1994.

Please contact us if you would like any more information or see the government leaflet ‘A better deal for tenants – your right to compensation for improvements’.
