Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.

  1. May I confirm this relates to England and Wales or another jurisdiction please?
  2. If it does relate to E&W what sort of accomodation is this - is it a lease you own, or a property you rent and are the trustees your landlord?
  3. If not is it a freehold property on a private estate on which you are bound by restrictive covenants not to alter without permission?
