Party wall award

A document setting out rights and responsibilities associated with certain party wall works proposed to be carried out by a building owner.

The party wall award is generally agreed and published by the party wall surveyors appointed by the parties in a party wall dispute. The party wall surveyors might have referred any matters of dispute to the third surveyor in which case a party wall award may be published by that third surveyor.

Any party to a party wall dispute who is served with a party wall award has a right to make a party wall appeal to the relevant court. If you have been served with a party wall award and are considering appealing it you should seek the advice of a party wall solicitor as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are properly protected.
