If your neighbours agree in writing, work can begin immediately. However, if you dispute or do not respond to the notification, you must send a follow-up letter. This will tell them that they will have to hire a surveyor within the next 10 days, or you will use one on their behalf. An agreement on the walls of the party is an agreement to register construction work with a neighbour of a common border in order to avoid disputes in the execution of the work. If you are a real estate professional, call us to see if we can help. We work with architects, surveyors, lawyers and developers, and our IP covers us for the business of the wall party and yours maybe not. You have to pay all the surveyor fees of the party that may arise for you and your neighbors, so try to agree, as far as possible, with your neighbor to use a common surveyor for the task. If your neighbour can`t decide whether or not to appoint a surveyor, you can hire one yourself. However, in this case, you cannot use the same surveyor as the one you used, which means more effort. For a complete breakdown of the party`s wall law and all its intricacies, take a look at the government`s official guidelines here or visit the RICS guide to party wall legislation and procedure. You always need a surveyor to complete the process if your neighbour disagrees. These opinions are not the final agreement.
You need one of those who are professionally prepared if your neighbors contradict your work. Keep in mind that any mistakes at this point will invalidate the whole process and you will have to start all over again. This may mean that you interrupt your work while you sort it. Constructions or transformations (i) on a wall, floor or ceiling, which are shared with another (ii) building at the border of another land; iii) all excavation work six metres from an adjacent building (iv) repairing a party wall or buttresses, sewers, sewers or troughs used with neighbouring land require a party closing agreement.
