Am I responsible for the maintenance of an alteration, that was made by the person who lived in my home before me?

After a tenancy ends and before a new tenant moves in, we will make a decision about whether to keep any alterations or to remove them and replace them with standard items.

If we decide not to remove a non-standard item, we take responsibility for the repair.

When the non- standard item is beyond reasonable repair, it will be removed and replaced with a standard fitting.

It is different for a Mutual Exchange?

For a Mutual Exchange, tenants agree to take on responsibility for the tenancy that they are exchanging to.  This includes any alterations which were made by the tenant that they exchanged with.
