Party Wall Solutions Truro can assist anyone who requires the services of a Party Wall Surveyor in Truro. The process of reaching a party wall agreement relies heavily on the expertise of our Chartered Surveyors, who have a wealth of experience working on a wide variety of projects.
As a consequence of their substantial experience acting as a neutral third party and mediator between the owners of the afflicted properties, hundreds of cases have been resolved successfully.
The Party Wall Act applies to any action that could have an effect on both sides of a boundary wall that separates two properties, such as destroying or rebuilding the wall, treating it for damp, or installing a beam in it. Other examples of actions that are covered by the Act include treating the wall for damp or installing a beam in it.
You are required to get permission from the other co-owner before commencing any work that has the potential to affect them. This is done by sending a letter to the owners of all of the properties that will be affected by the change.
Please get in contact with Party Wall Solutions Truro as soon as possible if you would like to speak with one of our surveyors.
In the event that the neighbour does not offer a written answer within the allotted amount of time (14 days), it is presumable that they are against the proposed work. In line with the Party Wall Act, a minimum of one surveyor must be employed if there is a dispute over the intended work.
This requirement applies whenever there is a party wall. Both parties have the option of choosing a single surveyor who will represent them in an unbiased manner on their behalf, or they can choose their own surveyors to work on their behalf.
