Get Permission

1 The first and certainly the most important thing before commencing with any redecoration is to get permission from ourselves. Preferably any request to redecorate would be put in writing with a description of the changes you are considering making. Doing this ensures that we can gain approval from the landlord to the changes you want to make and removes any potential arguments about decor in the future. In some circumstances a verbal agreement can be given, however, permission is always required before embarking on any redecoration.
