Refusing Party Wall Access
In this Property Surveying Podcast, we will be discussing the Party Wall etc Act 1996 and in particular how and when access onto an adjoining owner's land, property, or airspace would apply. Importantly we’ll also look at what happens when it’s refused!
Access generally applies to the majority of construction works, with a refusal of access likely leading to a conviction, fine or both, knowing the facts is vital.
Kaye v Lawrence & Security for Expenses
This case changed the way in which Surveyors viewed Section 12 of the Party Wall etc Act 1996 also know as Security for Expenses.
We also think this is one of the more interesting case laws out there, with celebrity adjoining owners, high value properties and court appeals, it doesn't get much better!
