    Conservatory to build in a leasehold ground Floor Maisonette (corner)

    Hi there,
    I need a suggestion from the experts here. I have recently bought a ground floor maisonette (cornered) which is under the leasehold of the council. I plan to build a temporary shed/conservatory outside in the garden side attached to the main building. I want to know:

    1- Am I allowed making this extension.
    2- If need any planning permission, what is the best way to start and proceed.
    3- Is there any way I can buy my lease? and make it a freehold?


    You don't want to make less than the whole building freehold. You can make an offer to the council to buy out the freehold of the whole building.

    Maisonettes will be like flats and not have permitted development rights.

    You lease will tell you whether you need permission form the landlord.


      Your questions should be put to the Council. If the rest of the building is occupied by Council tenants ,the rules may be different.

        OP you really need to listen to advice given as you seem to misunderstand most of the situation you are in, the meaning if your lease, that solicitors don't judge anything etc etc etc.

        Very much doubt council will assist either.

        RMC director here. We have applied for and received an FTT order for a variation of all of the leases for our block to correct a service charge deficit.

        Go back to the council (Environmental Protection) and make a formal noise complaint. You will have to keep a noise log for two weeks and then ask them to install recording equipment so they can monitor the nuisance (this is normally done over a period of two weeks and then assessed). If they refuse...

        The other leaseholders leave at around 6-7 in the morning... the basement dog comes out around 7:30. The top floor flat is further away from the garden than my flat and their living area is the other side of the property. The lady below does hear it after 11pm but it doesnt seem to bother her, and as...

        Yes that is because the OP in those threads created the muddle, and created originating posts that were essentially meaningless in and of themselves. The idea is to tell a whole and reasonably complete (but precise) story in one thread, clarifying details in response to queries in one place....
