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

    I thought it meant to add stuff from the "common areas" or just the external areas outside my delimited property?

    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.

    Good Morning. I'm brand new to this site so I apologise if this question is in the wrong section.

    My wife and I live in a self contained apartment in a converted old house. There are five apartments in total, occupied by five separate couples. We are all leaseholders and we collectively,...

    The estate I live on has 2 blocks. All the leaseholders are members of the company which owns the freehold and manages the block ("Share of freehold").

    by Sarah17
    Hi All,
    I recently bought a flat and learned since that the flat above is a regulated tenancy. The current tenant has moved in 1972. The flat is in a very shabby state, and I am worried about it (safety concerns, fire risk...etc). I wrote to the landlord and didn't receive any answer yet. A few...

    Hi All, many many thanks for your answers. As it is a regulated tenancy (beginning in 1972), indeed the rent is very low, the LL is doing the minimum expecting the tenant to move. I had the opportunity to look inside, it sounds in a very bad state, but I don't know up to which point this is just a...

    by NaomiB
    I'm afraid there is not the slightest chance that the roofs will all be done at once so that one's out. Although the flats are managed well, the garages never have been. The other garages in that block of six are owned by the freeholder. With him, it's a case of 'I won't do anything unless I can get...

    A year ago I bought a run down garage with a leaking roof. I thought I would be able to fix it with Flashband but it was impossible. I got a new roof and door and let it out to a neighbour. The flats are managed but the garages are not.

    Yesterday I got a text from the owner of the adjoining...

    I don't think you'll hear from your roofer, Naomi. I refer you to what I said before.



    Whatever he does will be done grudgingly, even if you get trading standards involved. Do you really want him to come back to do more of the same?

    As before, the roofs need all...

    I wrote to my roofer on 10 Jan but have had no reply. On Thursday my son went up to get better pictures. They show that the rubber has flapped right back and needs re-fixing. I wrote to him again on Friday but haven't had a reply. I am worried he is going to say it's wind damage but surely, with...
