Under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, every ‘adjoining owner’ is subject to the provisions of the Act. In a typical domestic scenario, this is usually limited to one other party but, in larger commercial developments in built up areas like York, the Act can affect multiple adjoining owners.
In such cases, the process of serving notices, mediating disputes and issuing awards can be complex, lengthy and expensive. At York Surveyors, we can work on your building project to ensure the demands of the the Act are dealt with thoroughly and efficiently.
