In the event of a dispute over the appropriate allocation of the party, an impartial third surveyor may settle the arguments. If your neighbour does not agree with the price of this expert, you and your neighbour have 14 days to object in the district court. The word “party” does not always cement happy collaborations. Although the nomination of our party, the wall is underestimated. Like your proposed party wall, they are well placed and are solid in providing decisive advice. The agreements of the party are different from the building permit or the planning permit. If the neighbour accepts the notice within 14 days, there is no need for a distinction or a surveyor, but in the event of a dispute, the designated surveyor will take care of the purposes when the work concerns the party wall and will eventually conclude an agreement and form the award document. If your neighbour doesn`t want to use an agreed surveyor, he or she also has the option of naming his own surveyor while you appoint one. You should note that you are responsible for all costs due to legal problems related to the life of the party, including your neighbour`s surveyor. An agreement on party walls, covered by the party walls law, includes common walls between semi-detached houses and semi-detached houses or structures such as floors between apartments or duplexes, as well as garden walls. In addition to changes that directly affect structures, the effects of excavations within 3 to 6 metres of the border may be covered by law if the foundations are considered probable (based on depth). In short, party surveyors help reduce risks for all parties and ensure that projects can move forward without delay. A party wall message should be sent to your neighbours to inform them of the work you intend to do on the party wall, between two months and a year before the work begins.
The Agreed Surveyor or an individual surveyor creates a legal document called the Party Wall Award. This Party Wall Award will detail the work to be done, how and when it will be done. You will also have plans to ensure that the work does not affect your neighbour`s property and what happens if it is damaged. A timetable for conditions is established to record the condition of your neighbour`s property before work begins. Based on this information, the surveyor and agreed surveyor establish the party price on the basis of the results. In many cases, people find that they do not need the services of a party surveyor. If your neighbour responds to your message and gives written permission that work can begin, there is usually no need to name a surveyor. As a party that plans the work, you have complete control over who the surveyor appoints and what they calculate.
