These matters are dealt with under the Party Wall etc Act 1996 and the legislation sets out the rights and obligations of Owners wishing to undertake constructiin work affecting adjoining buildings. Typically this will involve assessing the construction plans and establishing the rights which an owner will need to exercise before work can be started. Adjoining Owners have a right to engage an independent surveyor to safeguard their interests in order to avoid or minimise damage that might occur during the work.
