Can I make alterations to a property I am leasing?
When leasing a property, you will be able to make non-structural alterations, for example decorating the walls, installing partitions, changing the carpets or putting down laminate flooring. These cosmetic modifications can often be made under the rules of your lease and with consent from your landlord; you must check this prior to undertaking any work. At the end of your lease term, the landlord may ask you to restore the property to its initial state – either fully or partly. However, in many cases a landlord is happy for the property to be marketed again as is.
