    Can I replace the windows in a leasehold flat?

    Window Specialists

    I need to know if I can have new windows installed in a leasehold flat. If I’m willing to pay myself then does it matter?

    "Hi yes, you can personally get someone to install the windows if it's okay with your landlord just make sure they are FENSA approved installers however if your windows have issues such condensation and damp you should contact your landlord and they are legally bound to repair them if not you can get a snagging offer to come round and go from there. Hope this helps :)"

    "Yes that should be fine but I would check with the powers that be just to be sure. So long as you change it with a product that meets all the certifications, standards and laws I think that would be fine.
