What types of home improvements can I make?

If you’d like to make renovations, the general principle is that you can.

We encourage all of our future homeowners to make their home feel like home! So if you’d like to make renovations, the general principle is that you can. Some customers have opted to put in pools, upgrade their kitchen or paint the exterior.

We ask that you submit your renovation proposal to OwnHome for review. Of course, you can’t tear the property down and do a rebuild until after you have bought the home outright from OwnHome.

It’s worth noting that properties will often have some restrictions on what you can do - in the case of strata properties, the strata by-laws might regulate how renovations can be done and what materials can be used.

Your signed agreements have a bit more detail on home improvements, so get in touch with us and we can help make sure you can progress.
