Firstly keep up the good work to all of you ! I own a garden flat and Hounslow Holmes the local authority are my freeholder. They or the one person I correspond with have declined my enquiry regarding proposal of removing a window into my garden and replacing the window with french doors.
All works are to comply with building regulations and structural approval complete with fensa certification was my suggestion and I am up for approved contractors to keep all parties on side. Although as my leasehold document states no structural alterations the local authority will not move on this and I can appreciate their point however having no direct access to the garden from the back bedroom is not great. The garden is sizeable and could be extended into with approval.
Is anyone aware of movement from Local Authorities on leaseholders and alterations? The neighbour above is also enquiring about us all looking into purchasing the freehold there are four flats two up stairs and two down in a residential street, and from my research previously you require three leaseholders to purchase and then create a shared freehold ?
However I have been advised as our freeholder is the local authority there is a strong possibility they will or do not sell freehold shared or not !
Therefore am I stuck or any suggestions or guidance out there to assist me on my leaseholder dilemma ?
