I am a joint freeholder in a house which consists of two purpose built maisonettes.

I live in the ground floor property and the other freeholder lives above me. The Freeholder upstairs wants to undertake a loft conversion. I have several questions I was hoping you might be able to help me with? How does the loft conversion affect the terms of our lease which was originally written for one Freeholder who sold the lease to us, making us joint Freeholders? Presumably now we are both joint freeholders the lease is now not up to date and definately won't be if the surface area of flat above me is increased. Should the lease be re-written and at whose cost? I know the roof is old and needs replacing. We would need to share that cost presumably. Where would I stand with that as wish to only pay for the roof and not for other modifications necessary for the loft conversion? How do I protect my property from the builders hired for the job? This is the part that terrifies me as the property is old (1910-1912) and already proving to be rather fragile. We have had many leaks. Also I have just spent a huge amount of money updating the flat and garden IF you could help me with this looming decision I would be very grateful. thanks Molly
