from the roof tops

One of the many irritating things about this shared-ownership thing was (is!) the fact that it classifies me automatically as riff-raff, in terms of rights as an owner and as a tenant. I wasn't allowed to use the main entrance to the building (it was built with two, one for the 'private owners' or their tenants, on Fortess Road, another much smaller and more basic looking one for the shared ownership leaseholders and the housing association tenants, at the back). I wasn't allowed to use the roof terrace. These things have slowly changed and now I have use of both. The underlying problems with having a flat on shared ownership haven't gone away (already received a service charge bill where I'm going to be paying something like £260/month for not a lot at all) but at least I get to go to the terrace roof and take pictures of the breathtaking sunset cityscape of London from up there.
