After a nearly two-year struggle, Dua Lipa will finally be able to make modifications to her residence in West Hampstead but only if she sticks to strict Section 106 conditions.

Purchasing the property at the age of 22 in 2017 for a sum of £6.75 million, the 27-year-old artist encountered resistance to her plans in 2021 from neighbours.
