Can I put up a satellite dish?

We do not allow individual satellite dishes to be put up on blocks of flats, because this often breaches planning conditions, can be unsightly and can cause damage to the building. Newer developments often have a communal dish provided, or a service provider will normally be prepared to erect a communal system if a number of leaseholders want this. If you do put up a satellite dish, you will be charged for the costs of our removing it.

How do I comment on the cleaning of communal areas?

Call us on 0300 123 2209 - or speak with the contractor directly.

Can I leave my bicycle or pushchair on communal landings?
