Allowed in new build?

No, not allowed for the first 12 months. In new homes the builder is responsible for fixing any problems that occur in the first 12 months after you've moved in. There are some alterations that we can't allow during this period because it would invalidate this arrangement and the builder would no longer be responsible for any repairs. After 12 months you will be able to apply for permission for the alteration.

You will be responsible for providing adequate tiling and shower curtain or similar to prevent water damage.
