What is a Party Wall Agreement?
If your project involves building an extension or doing construction work right next to an adjoining property, then you will need a Party Wall Agreement survey to make sure you aren’t obstructing boundaries. If you carry out the work without a Party Wall Agreement survey, it may cause a dispute between you and your neighbour.
The Party Wall Act 1996 was designed to provide building owners with the right to stop any building work happen too close to their property. This is usually if the properties are in close proximity to one another, and the work you are undertaking goes passed the boundary wall splitting the two neighbours.
Why do you need a Party Wall Agreement?
Party Wall Agreements are important, as a dispute between you and your neighbour may lead to legal action being taken against you. This will cause both parties involved in the dispute an expensive solicitor’s bill and a long court process, which is why it is so important to get a Party Wall Agreement Surveyor to look at your plans before starting.
This is relevant if your project involves large extensions, conversions or renovations that could go over onto someone else’s land. We want to help our client’s prevent this and ensure the project runs as smoothly as possible.
