Building Owner's Party Wall Duty Breached - Gravesend

Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors agreed a Party Wall Award with the Building Owner’s surveyor. Subsequently it was found that the Building Owner’s obligations had been breached. Unauthorised scaffold and building materials had been placed on the Adjoining Owner’s land and an access cut through a boundary wall from our client’s land.

The weight of The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 was used to stop scaffold use until a Scaffold Licence was agreed and consideration paid to our client. We insisted materials were quickly removed and damage repaired expediently.
