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.

We often receive enquires from landlords who receive a party wall notice for a property that they rent out to tenants. In this scenario we must ensure that both landlord and tenant are given clear and concise advice throughout the process to manage their specific expectations.
Once such landlord got in contact with one of our surveyors, James Merewether, regarding a property he rented out in Streatham, South West London. The building owners served notices stating their intention to build a single storey rear extension. The landlord was concerned that the works would cause disruption to his tenants’ enjoyment of the property and also had concerns regarding potential damage during the proposed excavation works.
James agreed several provisions with the building owner’s surveyor which were confirmed in the party wall award to ensure that the tenants would be subjected to the minimum amount of inconvenience. Fortunately, the contractor took the contents of the award on board and there were no issues were reported during the construction process.
