tro:
a flat roof is not necessarily an attraction for lightning, if you are apprehensive about the quarters install a lightning rod on the bldg to divert any charge
MadMan:
No.
sunshine_mel:
…no, lightning would not kill all the people in the property. It would just hit the roof.

Loft space is handy for storage, but not a requirement. Up to you whether you move or not; this wouldn't be a reason though.

Maxi:
The chances of being killed by lightning are 300,000 to one
Nuff Sed:
If there is not a primary means of egress (i.e., hallway to stairs) and a secondary escape route (additional, separate stairs or windows), then many people have in fact died in such attic conversions when a residential fire starts from any cause (lightning, candles, cooking, electrical overload, whatever).

Also, many building codes require a window in any room where people are sleeping (i.e., 8 percent of the floor area equivalent in glass) and adequate ventilation (i.e., 4 percent of floor area should be "openable" to the outside, unless there is equivalent mechanical ventilation or an exemption in the code).

STEPHEN:
Lightning (correct spelling) will not strike a flat roof. Lightning goes for the nearest high point.
glenn:
This is one of the most unlikely ways you could die. And the flat roof does not increase your chances. But if this is keeping you awake – unable to enjoy life- then by all means -move.
anonimitie:
Yes if lightening struck, you'f be in jeopardy of dying. If a meteor hit, you'd be in jeopardy of dying. If there's a gas explosion, you'd be in jeopardy of dying.

None of the above are reasons to move.
