Home improvements: what changes you can make to your home

If you rent from Catalyst you are allowed to make changes inside your home, for example installing new bath and kitchen units.

You will need permission from Catalyst before you carry out any works. There may be some restrictions on the alterations you can make, for example if it affects health and safety within your home.

Please check Ask Catalyst for a complete list of types of home improvements you can make and any restrictions you need to be aware of. 

Disabled residents

If you are a disabled resident who would like to make alterations to help you move around your home more easily, please look at our aids and adaptations section for more information.


If you are planning improvements or alterations to your home you might need to let us know before work begins. Please see our home improvements guide for leaseholders.
