Party Wall Wembley

The most famous Wembley landmark is without doubt the Stadium. Recently rebuilt, evidence that Wembley could have been the Paris of the UK was uncovered. Beneath the playing field, the concrete foundations of what was intended to be an attempt to build a structure which would rival the Eiffel Tower were found. However, only the base of Watkin’s Tower was ever built, and it was demolished in 1907.

Even if you’re not planning completely rebuilding your own home, renovations and improvements can make it a more desirable place for you and your family to live in and increase its value. The paperwork for some aspects is easy enough to deal with yourself, but should your building works include a party wall, you should engage the services of a party wall surveyor.

 For works where there’s a party wall involved, the inconvenience isn’t just yours. Your neighbour also has to put up with the noise and disruption, not to mention any debris, but not necessarily get any of the benefits. You will need to serve them with a party wall notice to inform them what’s happening, when, and how to get in touch with you if they need to. This isn’t something you’ll want to do without an expert, as it will need to be done in accordance with the 1996 Party Wall Act.

Would I need to serve Party Wall Notice in Wembley?

If the work that you are having done on your property will have an impact on the structure or is close to a shared wall or boundary, then you have a legal requirement to serve your adjoining neighbour or neighbours with a notice. This notice will give details of all the work that is to be carried out and request the consent of your neighbours to that work.

Your neighbours will then find themselves faced with a number of choices. They can consent to the work being carried out, give their consent but ask for a schedule of condition or dissent while requesting a full Party Wall Award which should include a schedule of condition.

It is the responsibility of the owner, who wants the work done, to pay for whatever choice is made by the adjoining owner.

Are there benefits to having a Party Wall award in Wembley?

In short, there are very definite benefits to both the owner and the adjoining owner, or owners, if there is a Party Wall Award. Both will be protected in the event that a schedule of condition is carried out. This means that in the event of an issue, for example, should cracks appear in the shared wall, whether this occurs while the building work is taking place or in the years after that there is a record that will document the condition of the wall prior to the work taking place. This is done in the form of photographs so that the original condition of the wall is fully documented. 

As a legal document the Party Wall Award will normally be contained within the schedule of condition, this allows a surveyor to award any necessary compensation while the owner avoids any potentially expensive legal action being taken in a county court. Any documentation and photographs are retained by the surveyor for an indefinite period.

Your neighbours will then find themselves faced with a number of choices. They can consent to the work being carried out, give their consent but ask for a schedule of condition or dissent while requesting a full Party Wall Award which should include a schedule of condition.
