Would I need to serve Party Wall Notice?

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 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.
