    Party wall agreement

    Party wall agreement 20th Mar 17 at 10:03 AM
    The house next door us has recently been bought and work/renovations have already started.

    On the advice of my father, I asked the builder carrying out the works if the new owners would mind signing a party wall agreement. He said that no major structural works are needed and the only work affecting the party wall would be new electrics and plastering.

    Should I still insist on an agreement put in place, just in case, or is it simply not needed for these type of works? I would have thought that new electrics/ new sockets etc. could potentially cause an issue so better toe covered?

    Electrics and plastering do not affect the party structure. No party wall agreement is required for those.
