What happens if a tenant wishes to add a fixture?

Published in: June 2017

If a tenant wishes to add a fixture or make any changes to the rental property, they are required to seek written permission from the landlord prior to adding the fixture, or they must ensure that the terms of the rental agreement makes an allowance for the fixture to be added. Broadly speaking, the landlord may not unreasonably withhold permission of adding a fixture or making a renovation that is minor in scope. For such alterations, it may be the tenant who is responsible for the costs of making such improvements, unless the landlord agrees to cover the costs themselves.
