- Firstly, understand if your proposed works fall within the Act, call us if you are not sure.
- Preferably at ‘Planning Stage’ discuss your proposals with those neighbours who will later require Notice under the Act. The neighbour is much more likely to ‘consent’ to a Notice if you have been open and honest with them from the outset.
- ‘Consent’ to a Notice will avoid the need for Surveyors’ fees and for an Award to be agreed.
- If your neighbour(s) do consent to the Notice(s), ensure a schedule of condition is recorded of their premises and a copy provided to them prior to works commencing. This detail is extremely important and will protect both parties.
Note: We can provide a cost effective service to just draft and serve valid / legally compliant Notices where requested.
