The property is a Victorian terraced house which directly shares a party wall and a rear party fence wall (brick garden wall) with both neighbours. The scheme comprised the replacement of an existing conservatory with a modern contemporary side and rear extension. To maximize the living accommodation the scheme proposed to completely demolish and rebuild a large section of a party fence wall and to raise a party fence wall on the other boundary; and use them for the new extension main walls.
Both adjoining neighbours were very concerned, in particular, the general inconvenience of when the building owner (this is the person who wishes to undertake the works) “have the builders in” and having their premises left open. They were also concerned about the effect of the scheme should they at some point in the future wish to develop their property.
By ensuring both building and adjoining owners discharged their statutory duties under the terms of The Party Wall etc. Act 1996.
By giving an understanding of the rights granted under the Act
Checking and ensuring that suitable methods were adopted so that any inconvenience to the adjoining owner was kept to a minimum and their building was properly safeguarded.
Ensuring that the extension proposals were designed and built out in a manner that would be prejudicial to the adjoining owner should they wish to extend their property at a future time.
