A party wall agreement is required when working on shared walls or boundaries, specifically those that exist between two or more properties. The agreement outlines the proposed work to be undertaken and the potential impact it may have on the adjoining properties. It is typically required for works such as extensions, loft conversions, and basement conversions.
In simple terms, a party wall agreement ensures that both parties are aware of the work being carried out and any potential risks to their property. It is a legal requirement under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996.
A party wall surveyor can play a crucial role in the damp proofing process. They can identify potential issues during the surveying process and advise on the most appropriate course of action. For example, they may recommend additional damp proofing measures for the party wall to prevent moisture from penetrating the adjoining property.
Having a party wall surveyor involved in the process can also help to prevent disputes or damage between neighbours. By identifying any potential issues beforehand, both parties can be confident that the work will be completed without causing harm or inconvenience.
