locating ceiling joists
 
New to the site- hope someone can help...

I need to put up a timber frame for a drywall in my London flat. I have no access to the upstairs flat as it is owned by someone else, so how do you reccommend that i locate the ceiling joists to fix my head-plate to? I am reluctant to damage the original ceiling to search for the joists as it is in mint condition.

any help appreciated!!!

thanks
tom
