    Put a label on the door to show "Garden Tool Shed".

    Because in another clause "property" is defined as my internal flat, and my garden.
    So you can't make any additions in the garden, which is defined as part of the property.

    It also says that you can't make any openings in the boundry, which to me indicates the one intention was to clearly prohibit the erection of any garage/carport, which as well as an addition would mean making a new access through the boundry.

    But it also prohibits the erection of a garden office, shed, or even a greenhouse.

    The way it reads that includes free standing aditions. (Garage, outhouse, shed, etc).

    Unlike the other two clauses, it doesn't mention consent at all, it's just a bare prohibition.

    It's a house converted into 4 flats, each one with independent garden. I live in one of those flats.

    As you will need to alter the house electrics you will need to seek the written approval of the LL

    Can I put an office room in my garden?

    Hi, so I want to put an office in my garden which I think it'll be classified as outbuilding. It'll be of about 5 x 4 m I believe.

    Can I do it based on these clauses?

    Thanks very much for your help.
    1. Not to make any external or structural alteration or addition to the Property or make any opening in any boundary of the Property or cut or maim any structural parts of the Building.
    2. Not to make any internal, non-structural alteration or addition to the Property, or alteration to the plan, design or elevation of the Property, without the prior written consent of the Landlord, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
    3. Not to install, alter the route of, damage or remove any Service Media at the Property, without the prior written consent of the Landlord, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

    Firstly than you for taking time to reply and i have typed out the demise 1. that i was concerned about . I can see i have mistakenly used the date 2050 rather than 2150 for the Section 61 for development . This seems now not be a concern . However what effect does the clause for the 12 months preceding...

    The reason should have been explained to you when the application was made and you should have had the opportunity to challenge the application. The Tribunal would have considered if there was any prejudice to the leaseholders and should have made any appropriate comments within its decision.

    Have a flat in a block. The communal area is in very poor condition. Lighting not working for 15 years. Carpets worn out and threadbare. You can see the floorboard in places. Electrical cupboard door falling off.... Some residents leaving furniture in hallway.

    The managing agents applied...

    You have a point, most of the cost for a small job like that is the plumbers call out charge, so it makes sense to only have the one call out.

    If it's just seized up then there are things you can try, it may sound odd but one of them is tightening the top nut and then slackening it again....

    Our flats were built in 1962. Some of the stopcocks are now seized up. Originally, the water came into the building and there was a stopcock for each flat in the cupboard in the communal area. It may confuse things a bit now because we have water meters for each flat outside. However, I wanted to...

    It does make a difference if I have to pay, say, £130 for just my one whereas all nine could be done for not a lot more. I've passed it over to the residents' association to decide whether they want to go ahead or not. I'll spray mine with WD40 tomorrow!...

    Whether it is paid out of service charge or by individual flat owner, it still comes out the same pocket!.

    However, given that you plan to sell you flat, the last thing you want is an uncontrolled water leak damaging your flat.

    it is better to get a job done at once. ...

    by Flashback1966
    If there is a leak from the flat above, then you need to claim on your insurance. I know it sounds unfair, but that is how it works. The upper flat is responsible for fixing the leak. Ideally the entire building should be under one insurance policy, but sometimes, people insure separately....
