The Party Wall Act applies to any work that could impact each sides of a boundary wall between two properties, such as demolishing or rebuilding the wall, treating it for damp, or cutting into it to install a beam. Prior to commencing any work that may affect the other co-owner, you are needed to obtain their approval. This is performed by issuing a written notification to the owners of all affected properties. The notification must be issued at least two months prior to the commencement of the work.
If the neighbour does not offer a written answer within the required time frame (14 days), it is considered that they object to the proposed work. In accordance with the Party Wall Act, a minimum of one surveyor must be appointed whenever there is a dispute over the proposed work. It is possible for both parties to select a single surveyor who will act impartially on their behalf, or each party could select its own surveyor.
