It is tenants' own responsibility to carry out internal redecorations to their homes.
However, we can assist elderly or vulnerable tenants to redecorate their homes, free of charge, if they have had no decorations carried out by either the Council or Lewisham Homes in the preceding eight years.
You must be a Lewisham Homes tenant who either:
- is registered disabled;
- is elderly or an older person who is over 70 with support needs; or
- has a long term condition which causes you to have difficulties coping or carrying out everyday activities.
In addition, tenants unable to carry out decorations themselves must not have someone living with them who can do the decorations (i.e. someone who does not meet the above criteria).
To apply for internal decorations as a vulnerable resident, you will need visit your local housing office to complete an application form.
