The principal goal of a Surveyor in London has to make sure that it has:
- This access proposal has been thoroughly examined
- The property has the lowest amount of risk that the property of an owner who is adjacent to it.
There are no two properties that are exactly the same. Therefore, many aspects are applicable in the context of Party Wall access.
The Area for granting Access will be fully covered
Before beginning construction, the building owner must cover the perimeter of the area that a building owner or contractor are legally entitled access to begin the construction work. This covers the following aspects.
- The adjacent garden is protected by the fences that surround it during construction.
- Contractors are restricted to enter the area of the hoarding.
- There is only a small amount of transfer for dust and debris.
Polythene sheets are utilized for covering the areas of the hoarding. It is used to protect the surfaces of the various components of the property owned by an adjoining owner including windows, walls, drains or even the ground. It’s also possible to prevent the different kinds of damage that can occur with this kind of protection like scratches, marks of penetration, or other similar kinds of scratching on the surface.
It is essential to be aware that the owner of a building and contractor are granted access to a certain part of an adjacent owner’s property for an indefinite period of time to finish the construction work for or around the party wall that is described as part of the Party Wall Award. In actual practice, this right of access can be granted a property owner for between 4 and 8 weeks.
Thus, the owner of a building is granted an appropriate time frame for building the wall that is exposed or flanks of an extension, instead of creating an entire extension. So, the contractor needs to prioritise building the wall that flanks. This reduces the nuisance for owners who live adjacent to. The hoarding (used to safeguard the property of a neighbour) is monitored to provide maximum security.
The access to the adjacent homeowner’s home is subject to the “Party Wall Agreement’ as well as the input of an Party Wall Surveyor. In addition to ensuring that the points are in place they are able to provide the owner of the adjoining property with a contact point in the event of a problem in relation to construction work. An owner who is adjacent to the property can reach out to the Party wall surveyor who has drawn on an award called the Party Wall Award to allow them to solve the problem.
The owner of a building must nominate a gardener to be careful in removing any type of plant (present on the adjacent homeowner’s land). This ensures that no plants on the neighboring property are damaged in the course of construction.
A Party Wall Access may take various forms, such as hoarding or stationary/cantilevered scaffolding. It is important to make sure that the plan of a Party wall Access has been examined and approved by an Party Wall Surveyor irrespective of the kind of proposed.
On the other side on the other hand, on the other hand, the Party Wall Award provides a owner of a building with the right to enter the property of an adjoining owner. However it shields the adjacent owner in the event of damages to the property. This protection isn’t only for structural or decorative damage. It applies to any injury to vegetation on the property of a neighbor.
