    Just another question about wording in the lease

    "The lessor here by demises unto the lessee the 1st floor of the building"

    There is no mention of the loft being demised but I'm hoping that the first floor of the building includes the loft . . is this correct?...

    Good luck baby spice, I really hope it works out well for you. Please let me know how you get on. I think I'm going to give the loft room a miss (for now anyway) and concentrate on actually buying my friends flat. As lovely as a loft room would be, it's not the end of the world for me.

    Baby spice, thank you so much. Very helpful.

    I'm trying to find a solicitor to have a look at the lease but no-one seems interested or they are too busy. I have a couple more numbers to ring tho.

    If the roof space is in my demise and the freeholder doesn't give consent can...

    Sarah B - if the freeholder doesn't give permission and i go to court and win, what happens to the freeholder. how long would it take. My friend sometime ago looked into if the roof and space were hers but it wasn't clear although she does have sole responsibility for roof repairs. I know it's something...

    Anna, that doesn't really answer my question, Clearly, i am aware it is not the only flat in the Uk and I don't want to 'move on' as you suggest, I'm looking for ways to see if this can work. I don't think there is anything wrong with that

    If you can, please answer my question

    Am I being unreasonable wanting a loft room. I know it may be inconvenient for the neighbors but I am happy to pay all costs

    My friend who lives in the flat I want to buy from her saw her neighbours and the freeholder (relative off neighbors) today and broached the subject of the loft room. The freeholder categorically said no consent would be given and was quite cross and the neighbors said they wouldn't give access to any...

    I'm just confused as to whether a loft room is an improvement or an alteration.

    if classed as an alteration then i may be able to have the scaffolding put up in neighbours garden but if it is an improvement it seems i cannot.

    Can anyone help, its driving me mad trying to understand...

    Yes, the lease also says access for repairs and alterations.

    Now the question is, is building a loft room is classed as an alteration or improvements.

    Lawcruncher said improvements are not permissible.

    Lawcruncher (or anyone) can you clarify

    TIA...

    Aside from getting consent from the freeholder to build in the loft, the neighbors downstairs said they would not allow any scaffolding to be put on their land. They own the front, side and back gardens, which is in their lease, it is not shared so I guess it would be classed as trespassing.
