I hope you are well.
I will be happy to assist with your question today but please be advised that this is not a chat service so whilst I will endeavour to respond as soon as possible, replies may be intermittent.
Whilst this is a US based site, many of the experts, as myself, are based in the UK so can assist with your question.
Firstly, can you confirm whether you were served with a party wall notice prior to your neighbours commencing works?
Ok no problem, this may well work in your favour.
A Party Wall Notice is the first step they should have taken. If they now refuse to enter into the Party Wall Agreement and appoint surveyors, you will have rights to take them to court, especially if any damage is caused by the works they have undertaken. The court will look unfavourably at them for not following the correct procedures.
No problem at all.
Yes, if they continue without your permission and without consulting a surveyor for PWA purposes, you would have a very good case.
Is there anything else I can help with?
