If you are planning any construction work that may affect the party wall, you must serve a notice to your neighbor. Your neighbor has the right to object to the work or agree to it. If they object, you need to appoint a surveyor, and each party needs to appoint their surveyor. These surveyors then draw up the Party Wall Agreement, which outlines the rights and obligations of both parties.
The Party Wall Agreement protects the property owner’s rights and ensures that they are not affected by the work carried out by their neighbor.
Clarifies the responsibilities and obligations of property owners regarding the shared wall.
Helps prevent disputes and disagreements between property owners.
Provides a legal framework for resolving disputes if they arise.
