Party Wall Agreements
I am in a process of renovating a mid-terrace Victorian House. We have all the planning permission but due to some miscommunication between myself, the builder and the architect, no party wall notice was served to next door and building work has started. As soon we knew of the error, we engaged with a surveyor.
We’re now in the process of getting a party wall award as my neighbour has agreed to a ‘joint’ surveyor.
My understanding is that the party wall award will only be relevant to the work that is unfinished and NOT to the bits of work already completed? He is saying that we need to refer to the work done before the party wall notice was served within the award - is this correct? He’s also been talking to my neighbours BEFORE he’s served the notice to them and I have a suspicion he’s talked them into dissenting but obviously I have no prove. He’s also told my neighbour that she needs to dissent in order to get a party wall award as she is considering selling her house in the future to avoid any issues.
Hoping there are professional people here who know about this stuff!
