I am a leaseholder of a ground floor maisonette the freeholder is the local authority. The property only has an upstairs flat built above my dwelling, street view looks like a semi detached house.
My maisonette backs onto my personal garden, but to access my garden I have to go out through the kitchen door into the communal side access then into my garden. I can look from the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom into the garden. However, there is no direct access from maisonette to garden which could be achieved by replacing the bedroom window with french doors. Obviously any works would be subject to Fensa and building regulations with an approved contractor.
My lease states no structural works without approval which I understand, but there has to be some weight in a quality of life.
Has anyone achieved this before as I have received mixed messages from my freeholder the local authority?
If this was a freehold dwelling this would have been done by now, no doubt.
All thoughts very welcome.
