Landlord consent to alterations letter checklist

Make it Legal™ Checklist

Here are a few important steps to take to finish your document

Read the document to make sure it meets your needs and that you’ve provided all of the necessary information about the alterations and the terms of your consent. Remember that, if you have any questions, you can Ask a lawyer for advice. 

Make sure you attach the drawings and specifications that set out what alterations you’re consenting to before the Letter is signed. This will mean that, in signing the Letter, the landlord and tenant(s) are agreeing to the alterations as set out by these drawings and specifications.

The landlord should sign the Landlord Consent to Alterations Letter. If the landlord is a company or an LLP, its representative (ie signatory) must sign. 

You can sign your Landlord Consent to Alterations Letter by either:

  • signing in print. Print two copies of your Letter and sign and date both by hand

  • signing online using RocketSign

You should also ask your tenant(s) to sign the Letter (or both copies, if you’re signing in print) once they receive it - but you’ll need to send it to them first.

Once the landlord has signed the Letter (or both copies of it, if you’re signing in print), you should send the Letter to the tenant(s).

You could send the Letter by:

  • delivering it to the tenant(s) in person

  • sending it by post to the rental property or the tenant’s correspondence address, or 

  • by emailing it to them (eg if you’re signing it online)

Once you’ve sent the Letter, you should ask your tenant to sign the Letter to acknowledge that they’ve received it and that they agree to its terms. If you’re signing in print, ask them to sign both copies and to return one signed copy to you.  

The landlord and the tenant(s) should each keep their own original signed copy of the Letter (whether it’s digital or in print) for their records. 

A copy of your Landlord Consent to Alterations Letter will also be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’.
