    I hope you put more efffort into your studies!

    Re-read the OP. Then look up 'traditional pitched roofs'. I have made the assumption that the building has a traditional pitched (ie non-trussed) roof. I've yet to come across a flat roof with space for a loft in it's structure, although I'd happily see some photos.

    The ceiling will be attached to ceiling joists above which will be the loft space. The roof structure will be above this.

    I am not sure how you would intend to overboard the loft if you do not own the joists? Sounds quite difficult to me!

    Sounds like you have a right ot use the loft for storge but the roof - the bit the tiles are fixed too - remain the Freeholder's.

    Regardless of this you'd still need Freeholder's consent if you plan to convert the loft into habitable space. You'll also need Planning Consent as flats don't have Permitted Development rights and Building Regulation approval.

    flat description in the lease

    Hi,

    I am not sure I own the loft area above my flat (and accessible only from my flat). The loft is never explicitly mentioned but the wording of the description of the flat in the lease is not clear to me, if anyone has an opinion that would help before I start even thinking of contacting a solicitor and plan of converting. This is the description of flat in the lease:

    The flat on the second floor of the property including the following: a)The ceilings and floors of the flat and the joists or beams (if any) on which the floors are laid the joists or beams to which the ceilings are attached and the roof space above but not the joists or beams to which the roof is attached nor thereof b) the services solely used by the flat c) The walls and party walls within and bounding the flat provided that all walls separating the flat from any other part of the property shall be party walls deemed to be divided vertically

    it says the roof space above but then i don't get the 'not the joists or beams', does it mean I own the loft but not the roof?

    Many thanks for any help, It would come very appreciated

    I made a complaint to the ombudsman which was successful. My council was really annoyed as they had refused to show me a copy of a document and the Ombudsman forced them to send her a copy which she forwarded to me.

    Hi All, I could really use some guidance in a matter relating to the above. We were told by our agency handling our property that we needed to obtain a licence through the council. I did my research and asked all the relevant questions and found out that the licence will cost 650 for five years. Sounds...

    In this case I would ask a Chartered Town Planner, Don't contact the council apart from looking on their Planning Portal

    I am wondering if anyone can answer my question please?

    There is a plot for sale in my area that has planning permission granted on it. The thing is, this was granted when the site was larger than it now is as the vendor has fenced a section of it off and built himself a log cabin style...

    The plans provided with the planning application will show the position and size of the house granted planning permission, as well as showing the extent of the land identified on the site plan.

    The planning permission would have taken into account the area available for garden, and parking...

    Hi Tipper. It was granted for one dwelling but vendor has since built the cabin and fenced off the plot he is selling saying it has planning. But the planning was granted for the original whole site before he built his cabin that he lives in .

    It probably depends on what the permission was for and how many dwellings, etc.
    Also when pp was achieved as they run out after 3 years in most if not all cases.

    You can check on the local planning online to see the details, drawings, dates, etc.

    No not too late. We had the same situation for our three holiday lets.

    We pressed the installer to register the new boilers with Gas Safe who in turn send certification to the local Building Regs which is what they are supposed to do upon installation, assuming they are qualified and 'Gas...

    Not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but what are the circumstances to obtain a Buildings Regulations Certificate? For example building a house, an extension, fitting a new boiler, installing a new light fitting, replacing a light bulb etc?

    Thanks for the advice all. I've had 2 boilers replaced by different installers over the last 6 years, but not received a Building Regulations Certificate from either one. I didn't ask the installers about it at the time as I was unaware of the need. Although they did provide Gas Safe Reports as requested,...
