The flat conversion I live in has floorboards with T&G chipboard flooring on top, the chipboard is now 30yrs+ and needs replacing in my kitchen where water damage from neighbours flats and just old age has made in rise and fall in places.
I may as well replace the kitchen units etc while I’m having the flooring sorted and just wanted to know if the permission for this will be straight forward.
You may not need permission for any of this work. You will need to check your lease as they do slightly. Floor boards or the surface of a hard floor often belong to the leaseholder, that is you. As with kitchen units. Just check that no structural repairs are involved, which would need permission, and that your lease in particular gives you the floorboards.
Looking at the lease it seems The First Schedule says ‘The premises include the surface of floors above the joists or other supporting floor structure…’ this I presume is the bits I am responsible for.
