While it may seem like an unnecessary cost, a condition schedule also prevents your neighbors from making false claims against you and will be significantly cheaper than hiring two separate surveyors. Now that the communication has been sent, all neighbors neighbors have 14 days to respond. If the answer is yes, your neighbours agree and agree. It is questionable whether, in the present circumstances, the allocation of party walls was not necessary, given that the work was carried out with the agreement of the parties. While an award could be awarded in hindsight, it is of little use now that the work has been completed. As Tim points out in his position: the rights granted under PWA 1996 are personal to the original parties, i.e. to the original contractor (who exercised his rights under the PWA in 1996 and who had served a notice of cancellation of the party) and to the original neighbouring owner (who received the notification and had the opportunity to accept the work , to exclude a claim or trigger a dispute). We never had a party wall agreement with our neighbour at the time, because we were a bit naïve and behaved very well with our neighbour, who also renovated their property. In fact, our neighbor was simply happy to share the cost of labor, which benefited from two features like building a fire support wall in the attic and rebuilding the tip of the fireplace. We are planning a loft extension. Our neighbor has ordered a rogue surveying company to act on his behalf (The Internet is littered with bad stories about him).
A “Party Wall Agreement” is not the same as a Party Wall Award. An “agreement” would generally be used when the person doing the work and his neighbours agree to accept the work in progress without the need to include the party surveyors. If a neighbour is not willing to accept the work in progress, it would usually require a “Party Wall Award” before work begins. Since a party wall agreement does not require the participation of surveyors, it is generally a much cheaper option than a Party Wall Award. “If the work begins without the consent of the neighbour (the adjoining owner), the neighbour can apply for an injunction to prevent the proposed work from taking place until an assignment takes place, resulting in significant delays in your plans,” Jon said. “You should also be aware that once the work is completed, you cannot receive an after-the-fact award.” It will contain the information and contact information of the two households as well as associated surveyors. In addition, a third indicator is added to the document. This silent surveyor will mediate and resolve any disputes that arise. Looks like the neighbor communicated with him a lot during that time, and he wants me to pay for that time? If you receive your consent after notification, there is no need to hire a surveyor or have a party bargaining agreement.
