In most cases, removing a chimney breast will not require a party wall agreement. However, there are some situations where a party wall agreement may be necessary. For example, if the chimney breast is shared between two properties or if the work involves underpinning the party wall, a party wall agreement may be required.
Advantages of Having a Party Wall Agreement:
Clearly outlines the responsibilities of each party involved in the construction project.
Provides a framework for resolving disputes that may arise during the construction process.
Helps to ensure that the work is carried out safely and to a high standard.
Helps to protect the rights of all parties involved in the construction project.
