I have obtained planning consent for a rear "in-fill" extension that will require beams to go into the adjoining wall with the neighbour. The neighbour contacted a surveyor and we were going down the party wall award process with the surveyor acting for both parties. The neighbour has now stated that it is his wall and he does not want it to be touched. This wall is basically a continuation of the wall that both our properties are joined onto. What rights does he have or I have ?
its very difficult to resolve party wall problems ,its equal rights to each party,if he does not want you to touch that wall,its best not to! You can argue the toss and go back and forth with surveyors reports and legal costs,its just not worth it. Build a wall infront of it,
