If a Party Wall award - after 14 days in which to appeal -

This answer was rated:

If a Party Wall award - after 14 days in which to appeal - is found to have clerical errors eg clause 5 numbered twice and refs to 4c and 4 g that do not exist (because they meant clause 5) and other copy and paste errors (!) is it still lawful and actionable?
LondonlawyerJ :

Hello I am a solicitor with over 15 years expereience. I wiil try to help you with this., If the errors are simly clerival and the meaning of the award is still clear it will still be valid.


Even if there is a reference to Clause 4 j which does not exist but is in fact 5 g ?


It was drawn up by 2 P W surveyors

LondonlawyerJ :

Does it still make sense is it clear who the award is in favour of and what has been awarded? If so it is no problem.


well yes after a bit of searching to find which clause and letter it may refer to by someone, like myself, with a degree in English!


I would like to ask another question.........

If I do not appeal a Party Wall Addendum and the AO takes me to Court - would I have the opportunity to say why I had not paid ? In fact he refused access for us to finish the build unless I paid him cash. I did not want to pay cash and offered a cheque or directly into his bank. He ignored this . We reached stalemate and the wall on his side has not been completed. Therefore I would argue that we have not had the opportunity to 'make good' as required in the original PW award. Am I right? Can he insist on cash before he allows access to his land ? Can you quote any precedents please?
