Have you received a party wall notice and are not sure how to respond? Perhaps you’re concerned about the proposed works but don’t want to fall out with your neighbour by adding to the cost of their project? Having an agreed surveyor is an economical solution but are you aware that you can also consent with conditions? A typical condition would be for the building owner to cover the cost of a professionally prepared schedule of condition covering the parts of your property that are at risk from the works but it’s also possible to agree conditions relating to the hours of works, access etc. Contact us today to discuss the options.

The Party Wall Act confirms that the party undertaking the works is responsible for any loss or damage suffered by the adjoining owner and that disputes should be determined by the appointed surveyors. However, it provides no further guidance on how the dispute should be resolved and that can differ considerably depending upon the scale of the damage.
Our Director Justin Burns recently completed an inspection of an adjoining property just off Heath Road in Twickenham following completion of the building owners’ rear extension. Some minor damage was noted to the adjoining owners’ kitchen.
Technically, the owners should be left to resolve the issue but experienced surveyors will use their experience to guide the owners and facilitate an agreement. In this case, the contractor agreed to the surveyors’ suggestion that he should return and make good the damage and the adjoining owners were pleased with the work.
