Party walls draft letter requiring an adjoining owner to appoint a surveyor

The appointment of a surveyor arises out of a dispute between the two owners, following service of notice. A dispute arises when there is an express dissent to a notice or when a party structure notice or notice of adjacent excavation is not responded to by the adjoining owner within 14 days.

In either of these situations the parties must then appoint surveyors. They can either agree the appointment of a single surveyor who will be the agreed surveyor or each appoint their own separate surveyor.

This is a template letter for requesting another party appoint a surveyor.
