COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL
Under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, every ‘adjoining owner’ is subject to the provisions of the Act. In a typical domestic scenario, this is usually limited to one other party but, in larger commercial developments in built up areas like Chesterfield, the Act can affect multiple adjoining owners.
In such cases, the process of serving notices, mediating disputes and issuing awards can be complex, lengthy and expensive. At Chesterfield Surveyors, we can work on your building project to ensure the demands of the the Act are dealt with thoroughly and efficiently.
WAYS IN WHICH WE MAY HELP YOU WITH YOUR ISSUE:
If your neighbour is carrying out building work up to your boundary line or abutting the party wall, they are required under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 to issue a formal notice and allow you time to dissent.
If you want to dissent from agreeing to the works in the way that the neighbour proposes, or want to make sure that the neighbour’s works are dealt with appropriately to protect your property, our surveyor can help you manage the process effectively and avoid damage and protect your interests. Your neighbour will usually pay your /our surveyor’s fees.
If you’re the party wanting to build, we can help you proceed as smoothly as possible, whilst fulfilling your legal obligations and keep costs to a minimum.
