What is a Party Wall Award?
A party wall award is a lawful record that lays out a specific rights and obligations of the constructing proprietor (normally, the instigator of works to be performed on the party wall) and the owner of the adjoining property or home.
The party wall award is drafted by a party wall surveyor (if an individual surveyor is employed by all parties) or by party wall surveyors (if all parties have independent surveyors).
The award precisely lays out what kind of construction is carried out by the property owner, the agreed-upon timescale and also the method of the works to be accomplished.
A schedule of condition is normally also prepared to show that the building owner is responsible for any damages the party wall works causes to the adjacent residence.
In an event of such scenarios, the Party for Award is actually a point of the reference file. This is exactly why it is very vital that you keep the record in a safe place. Ideally, alongside the deeds to the property.
Party Wall Award also referenced as Party Wall Contract is a vital authorized document and will be very helpful for virtually every long term dispute solution.
Party Wall Service: Party Wall Agreement
Before you start any construction work with regards to party walls affecting neighbours (Adjacent Owners), a written Party Wall Agreement is essential.
To start this process, the householder undertaking the building works, need to serve a written notice to the impacted neighbours that is also known as Party Wall Notice.
As part of our primary services, we offer authorised and written Party Wall Notices throughout the London area.
The moment the Party Wall Notice has been delivered, the neighbours have 14 days to react. In this situation, there are 3 possible outcomes:
The neighbour gives assent meaning agree the job to be undertaken offering the householder will put right any problems.
In this situation, it’s best practice to appoint a surveyor to inspect and create a schedule of condition. This is to avoid any unnecessary disagreements at a later phase. This ought to be done right prior to starting any building works.
The neighbour dissents or they actually do not react within 14 days, which means it’s assumed they have disagreed with the proposed work.
If this is the situation, then each party can designate their very own independent Party Wall Surveyor to issue a Party Wall Award.
The agreed-upon surveyor must be unbiased rather than the same surveyor the house owner might be using for their own works. Otherwise, their neighbour is unlikely to view the surveyor as neutral.
Each owner’s appointment their own surveyor. This can be an expensive option as the homeowner carrying out the works is responsible for the cost of both surveyors.
It is important that all these options available to the neighbours are clearly explained to the neighbours when serving the Party Wall Notice.
