Suggested letter to appointing owners upon service of the party wall award
The party wall award must be served on the parties and becomes legally binding. The parties have the right to appeal against the award in a County Court within 14 days if they feel that it has been made improperly. A building owner is not obliged to delay commencing work for 14 days while waiting to see if an appeal is lodged although there may be circumstances in which the surveyors impose a 14 day delay, as they are entitled to do.
This is a template for a letter to accompany such an award.
