Not sure what a servedom on my property is .... but since the buliders arrived without paperwork or any communication from me ... I had been away the previous week an was told verbally by the neighbours on Friday evening that work would be starting on Monday last.
The work did not go ahead after they had read my notice of the party wall etc act
I am advised that they must give me 8 weeks notice and receive written agreement form me that the work can go ahead.
I cannot agree surely, until a surveyor agrees that the work will not structurally damage my home or/
until I have sorted my life out/accomodation to leave my home for a week during the very noisy work
My surveyor is concerned re a civic case and not sure who should pay ... says I should get advise, which I hope to have from you please. So far my surveyor has not carried out any visual work, just verbal advice on the phone. So far, I have not incurred costs to my knowledge.
The neighbours have suggested a surveyor I should use.
The costs to me for this surveyor is my concern
Thank you Joshua.
Before I sign off ........ because I am very concerned about the neighbour's attitude ......... they tell me they have bought to sell ... so no polite loyalty to neighbours and issue.
am I right to understand that if I use their surveyor, rather than appoint my own .......... they are responsible for all the costs.
Verbally they deny this.
Technophobe here too .... a Granny at that! ..... how do I print your answer off please to deliver to the neighbours?
Many thanks Joshua.
I will print this off and forward to my surveyor because I understand that the neighbours are liable to pay him in full
Many thanks Joshua. That all seems clear.
I have sent your rating
Best wishes and out into the sunshine
Ah bless. Joys of being a Granny ........ abeit broke and scared of neighbours!
Hope you have a lovely sunny evening ... or lunch in the sunshine.
Very many thanks Joshua.
Grandchildren are much more fun than the law ... less helpful maybe!
very best wishes
