What are major works?

Major works are usually non-routine building programmes to maintain or improve your building.

As a leaseholder you are responsible for paying for these.

Works can include

  • replacing windows/ roof
  • lift renewal
  • structural repairs
  • installing CCTV
  • fire risk assessments
  • landlord electrical

How we'll consult you on major works

Before any work starts on your building you’ll have your opportunity to let us know what you think every step of the way.

This consultation starts with you receiving full notification of the work we plan to carry out.

Work will often be carried out by one of our partner contractors and you’ll be invited to evaluate their quotes and reply in 30 days.

Alternatively, you and your resident association are entitled to nominate a contractor of your choice to bid for the contract. Please note this does not apply to the building safety block by block programme
