The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 covers different types of works; alterations to a shared party wall, the construction of new walls on the boundary and excavation work close to the neighbouring properties. The last is often overlooked by owners planning to extend their property.
Where works falls within the scope of the Party Wall Act, it is required that the Building Owner serve notices and obtain the affected Adjoining Owner(s) consent to the works, if that consent is not forthcoming the parties are deemed to be ‘in dispute’ under the Party Wall Act and Party Wall Surveyors must be appointed so that this dispute can be resolved by way of a Party Wall Agreement (referred to as an ‘Award.’)
Christopher Anthony Surveyors always advise Building Owners to speak to their neighbours before serving the formal notice as this informal consultation often helps with achieving a consent from the neighbours.
