My lease states that demised to my property is "the ceiling but not the structure horizontal or otherwise supporting the part above the ceiling and horizontal structure supporting it". It sounds to me that I do not own the attic.

I decided not to buy the roof. One lessee was opposed and threatened legal action even though the board agreed to sell. I would rather not face the risk of being sued.
