Party Wall Award
A party wall award is a legal record that lays out a precise privileges and responsibilities of the building owner (generally, the instigator of works to be accomplished on the party wall) and the owner of the adjoining property or home.
A licensed party wall surveyor drafts the Party Wall Award. This is actually the scenario if one surveyor is appointed by both sides or draft by two surveyors if separate surveyors are assigned by both parties.
The record usually sets out the level of the works to be carried out by the building owner, the agreed time scale as well as the method of the works to be completed.
It is a best practice also to put together the Schedule of Condition document as this clearly implies that the building owner is accountable for any damages the party wall works may cause towards the adjoining real estate.
In an occurrence of such situations, the Party for Award is actually a point of the resource record. This is why it is extremely vital that you keep your document in a safe place. Preferably, along with the deeds to the property or home.
Party Wall Award also referenced as Party Wall Contract is a vital legal document and will be very helpful for virtually every long term dispute solution.
Party Wall Agreement
Before beginning any building work relating to party walls affecting neighbours (Adjacent Owners), a written Party Wall Agreement is required.
To be able to start this process, the homeowner who may be performing the building work needs to issue a Party Wall Notice to the adjacent neighbours. This must be delivered as a written notice.
We provide Party Wall Notices in the London area as part of our Party Wall Surveyor services.
The moment the Party Wall Notice has been delivered, the neighbours have got 14 days to respond. In this situation, there are 3 possible outcomes:
The neighbour provides assent meaning agree the work to be completed providing the householder will put correct any problems.
In this case, it’s best practice to appoint a surveyor to inspect and create a schedule of condition. This is to prevent any unnecessary disagreements at a later phase. This needs to be done right before you begin any construction works.
The neighbour dissents or they do not answer back within 14 days, which means it’s assumed that they have dissented.
In this case, both parties can appoint their very own surveyor or even a common surveyor to issue a Party Wall Award.
The agreed surveyor must be impartial and NOT the same surveyor the homeowner might be utilizing for their own works. Otherwise, their neighbour is unlikely to view the surveyor as natural.
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.
