Dear All, Firstly thank you to the website and its members for all the informative content which has been of enormous help to us throughout the years!
We currently own a ground floor flat on a very long lease. The freeholder of the building has begun excavation and underpinning for the development of a basement flat beneath us. I appreciate they own the soil, however our lease explicitly states that the floor, all supporting joists and boards are demised to us.
Therefore, are they allowed to continue with this development without our consent?
They will be attaching steels to our floor for underpinning and excavation?
