Hi, I'm working on a brick two-story flat attached and it has this ugly sag where the bathroom is on second floor.It was definitely water damaged that caused this disaster.I have sistered 4of 5 joists the last is in such bad condition .On top there are four roof joists supported by partition wall and some sought of mini roof 5'x5'.Can i eliminate that section of partition wall and extend all the way back to main exterior wall which is part of building.

Re: sagging joists
Call and pay an architect, structural engineer or licensed carpenter. That fact that you would ask such a complicated, open-ended, liability laden and potentially hazardous question online indicates you are well on the road to disaster.
Your conditions need to be visually inspected and assessed by a qualified person. Do not believe all the HGTV hype a DIY cannot do everything.
