    I have recently moved into a new house. The under stairs cupboard contained the attached structure. It looks safe to remove to me as I want to create a sensible height cupboard rather than the odd thing I have now.
    Can I safely remove the false ceiling to the cupboard?

    It certainly doesn't look structural - just joists and boards - so I don't see any problem with removing those studs. Be careful not to disturb the studs because they may be adding to the rigidity of the stairs
