    Thanks a lot.
    Yes I am asking but I got no answer so far.
    It looks like solid cemented flat roof, although I am not builder, I think the reason for the rails to be put that away from the border is only for design purpose. Because the terrace is already very large and does not really require to be larger.

    You have to ask the freeholder for permission to move the rails.

    You also have to establish, by way of the freeholder, why the rails were set back, is it that beyond that the underneath is just timber and not solid, or what.

    Only the freeholder can authorise you.

    Top floor terrace extension

    Hi,
    I have a (demised) terrace delimited by stainless steel rails with glass but the area doesn't cover the full roof (I am the only one who can access).
    It's difficult to know from the lease document whether the area beyond the glasses belongs to me or not, as the shape of the plan would not change, and there is no measurments at all.
    I would like to enlarge the terrace by pushing the rails few meters away, how can I know whether I am authorized to do that ?

    You cannot be in adverse possession against your landlord. However, the loft may be included in your lease. Read this thread and come back with any questions: https://forums.landlordzone.co.uk/fo...-Is-the-loft-c...

    The loft space is not yours to use.
    The lease tells you what you DO own or is your demise. it does not go through everything that is NOT yours.
    Your lease clearly states you are leasing the rooms in the flat, and are responsible for those rooms, up to the ceiling, and not beyond. It tells

    There are several aspect to this.

    Before incurring any expense or trouble, you need to establish that the road is indeed private, and not a public highway not maintainable at public expense. From the limited information you have supplied it sounds private, but the devil can be in the detail....

    As an afterthought to my previous posting, the land within the curtilage of a dwellinghouse, even if it is a listed building, has permitted development rights that allow hard surfaces to be created and a new means of access to a highway created.
    That would mean that certain work could be undertaken...

    If the whole area of land that you own is land associated with your main residence then selling off part of that land does not result in any capital gains tax liability because of Principal Private Residence relief (PPR).

    If you agree to sell it to your son without the benefit of planning...

    Just agree a price and instruct a solicitor.

    You may get involved with capital gains tax though and he may not get planning permission.
