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.

How can I buy more shares in my home?

Buying more shares in your home is called staircasing: after you’ve bought your initial share, you can then buy further shares called tranches. The minimum tranche you can buy is 10%. You can usually buy up to 100% of your home. Find out more

Can I leave my bicycle or pushchair on communal landings?

The short answer is no: communal hallways and landings have to be kept clear at all times because they are a means of escape in case of fire. If anything is left in the hallway, we will ask you to remove it: if you don’t, then we will dispose of it and may incur costs as a result.
