We would all like an easy going neighbour and perhaps you have one! Nonetheless, when it comes to party wall matters and access issues a signed agreement is a lot more comforting than a handshake.
The Party Wall etc Act 1996 was created in order to avoid neighbourly dispute in relation to works to a party wall or excavations in proximity to a neighbouring structure.
If you are planning an extension, basement conversion or merely removing a chimney breast it is likely that you are required to serve Party Wall Notice on your neighbour. JMC Surveyors are well versed in party wall matters and will aid both building owners and adjoining owners in reaching a fair and amicable agreement. Our pragmatic approach and expert negotiation skills have helped us agree access agreements with neighbouring properties to aid construction projects throughout the country.
