With excellent schools, modern accessibly priced properties and proximity to London, Harlow is recognised as a great commuter town to settle down as a family.
A family home has to work hard, and often Harlow homeowners make the decision to extend their property or convert their loft. If you live in one of Harlow’s many semi-detached or terraced properties this decision to extend will often mean you have to obtain a Party Wall Agreement.
A Party Wall Agreement will protect the rights of your Harlow neighbour ensuring that in the event of any damage caused they will have fair recompense. A Party Wall Agreement also sets out access arrangements and working hours prior to the building work beginning, so that there are no nasty surprises and unnecessary conflict with your Harlow neighbour along the way.
A Party Wall Agreement also ensures that as you undertake building work and seek to add value and space to your Harlow property, you do not encounter any false claims of damage.
A Party Wall Agreement isn’t only necessary for extensions or loft conversions. If you are planning to remove a chimney breast on a shared wall within your Harlow home, insert damp proofing or raise an external boundary wall you will also require a Party Wall Agreement.
