Party wall problem Kensington.

adjoining owner, General Questions on Party Wall, Latest Newson October 24th, 20121 Comment

Recently I engaged a roofer to do some work on my roof in Kensington; my neighbour who I don’t have a great relationship with, complained about the scaffolding, then enquired whether we had party wall approval to do the works. My roofers told me that I didn’t need to have a party wall agreement for the works they are doing as they aren’t doing work to the party wall, they are merely changing tiles. For your information the tiles do cross over the party wall as they join the neighbour’s roof. Please can you tell me where I stand on this matter.

Builder in hampstead with a party wall problem

Hi, I hope you can help. Im a builder working in Hampstead London and note that you deal with party wall issues in this area. We have a problem with the adjoining neighbour to the property we were working on. Her party wall surveyor wanted to keep coming to our property and inspecting our work!I  took the view that I had nothing to hide so I let the party wall surveyor into our customers property and he inspected four times. However I now understand that he has sent a bill to my customer for each inspection he undertook. Can you clarify this for me?
Has the adjoining neighbour’s party wall surveyor got the right to inspect the work being undertaken in our customer’s property, who was served the party wall documents?

Also does my customer have to pay for the inspections?
