Help with managing your Party Wall responsibilities when you are planning to extend your home or convert your attic. We provide an appropriate Homeowner service for £600 (+ VAT), which is around 2/3 of many or most others – we do great work for a lower fee.
First, the person carrying out the works will usually be responsible for payment of all Party Wall surveyor’s fees under the Party Wall Etc. Act 1996. They have legal obligations under the Act. Failure to comply with these obligations can lead to court action, delays, and major expense.
In the event that your neighbour is planning to extend their home or to convert their roof space, you are an ‘Adjoining Owner’, and the Party Wall Acts gives you useful protection to ensure that any relevant works are carried out with reasonable care and without you causing unnecessary inconvenience.
