Party Wall Surveyors – Case Study Number 401 – Side Extension in Grays, Essex, RM18


Fixed Price Party Wall Surveyors in Essex were contacted by an adjoining owner in Grays, Essex, to advise us that their neighbor had started digging the foundations for a new side extension to their home and had not served them with any party wall notices.

We contacted the building owner who was carrying out the works to advise them of their obligations under the Party Wall Act; however, the building owner ignored our letter.

We, therefore, went to a site where we met with the building owner and discussed the implications should they attempt to ignore the party wall act.

They ceased the notifiable works until we had an opportunity to inspect the adjoining owner’s home and produce a schedule of conditions report.

Within a couple of days, we had an entire party wall agreement in place, protecting all owners and the contractor, and the notifiable works continued.

It is essential that the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 is followed by homeowners wishing to extend their homes. It protects all parties, provides an avenue for dispute resolution and is generally good for long-term neighborly relations.
