Making Changes to Your Home
Seaside Homes has ensured that your home is decorated to a high standard and would prefer that you do not make any alterations, including painting, without first seeking the advice and permission of the Housing Management Team. Should permission be granted, all decoration must be done to a high standard and finish. If permission is not granted, you could be recharged for the cost of redoing it at the end of your tenancy. This recharge may also be applied should the decoration have deteriorated badly over the course of your tenancy.
When you move in, your Housing Officer will fill in an inventory which you sign which states what condition the property and fixtures and fittings are in when you move in. It is your responsibility to make sure that the property remains in a similar condition. This will be checked when you move out. You may be charged for any damage and repairs needed. We will expect some fair wear and tear over the course of your tenancy but any damage caused over and above this will be your responsibility.
