1. The Structure Proprietor must first serve legitimate Notification(s) on Adjoining Proprietor(s) when notifiable work is proposed. See ‘Structure Owners’ tab below. We commonly see invalid Notices prepared by Building Proprietors implying unfortunately, they should start the process once more. Structure Owners likewise frequently offer the incorrect kinds of Notice.
2. An Adjoining Proprietor (the neighbour) having obtained a Notice might dissent and in this event is qualified to select their own Party Wall Land Surveyor. Costs for this Land surveyor will normally be met by the Building Owner.
