Definition of an Adjoining Owner“Adjoining owner” and “adjoining occupier” respectively mean any owner and any occupier of land, buildings, storeys or rooms adjoining those of the building owner and for the purposes only of section 6 within the distances specified in that section.
We would suggest that should you have such a situation, you act quickly and contact us so that we can advise you accordingly.
We would recommend that if the works were of a simple nature the Adjoining Owners could consider appointing one single Party Wall Surveyor, referred to within the Act as the “Agreed Surveyor”. The Party Wall Company act as the Agreed Surveyor often and we would be happy to advise of the advantages and disadvantages of using one surveyor.
