What is a Party Wall Award?
A party wall award is a lawful document that lays out a specific rights and duties of the building proprietor (normally, the instigator of works to be done on the party wall) and the owner of the adjoining residence.
The party wall award is drafted by a party wall surveyor (if one surveyor is employed by all parties) or by party wall surveyors (if both sides have independent surveyors).
The record precisely lays out what type of building work is accomplished by the construction owner, the decided timescale and the method of the construction works to be achieved.
It is best practice to also put together the Schedule of Condition report as this clearly demonstrates that the building proprietor is responsible for any damages the party wall works could potentially cause towards the adjoining real estate.
This document works as a point of reference point if any such scenario occurs. It is important to keep the party wall award in a safe place, preferably with the deeds to the property.
Party Wall Award also known as Party Wall Agreement is a crucial legal record and will be very beneficial for almost any future dispute solution.
What is a Party Wall Agreement?
Prior to starting any developing work relating to party walls affecting neighbours (Adjacent Owners), a written Party Wall Agreement is required.
To be able to commence this procedure, the homeowner who may be doing the construction work needs to issue a Party Wall Notice to the adjacent neighbours. This has to be provided as a written notice.
Our company offers Party Wall Notices in the London area as part of our Party Wall Surveyor services.
The moment the Party Wall Notice has been served, the neighbours have got 14 days to react. In this situation, there are 3 possible outcomes:
The neighbour gives assent which means say yes to the job to be carried out offering the homeowner will put correct any problems.
In this situation, it’s best practice to appoint a surveyor to inspect and prepare a schedule of condition. This is to prevent any unnecessary disagreements at a later phase. This ought to be done right before you start any building works.
The neighbour dissents or they actually do not react within 14 days, which means it’s presumed that they have dissented.
If this is the situation, then both parties can appoint their own individual Party Wall Surveyor to create and provide a Party Wall Award.
The arranged surveyor must be independent rather than exactly the same surveyor the house owner might be utilizing 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.
