There are various reasons why a Tottenham developer or homeowner may not serve a Party Wall Notice on their neighbour when they should.
Sometimes a Party Wall Notice isn’t served due to a simple case of ignorance and neglect by the Tottenham developer.
At other times the lack of a Party Wall Notice is a lame attempt by the Tottenham homeowner to avoid legislative hassle.
Not serving a Party Wall Notice might be seen as a way to keep costs down by a Tottenham property owner. Or perhaps the lack of notice may be a way of going under the radar to avoid conflict.
Whatever the reason for not serving a Party Wall Notice on your Tottenham neighbour, there is no good excuse. It is both a mistake and unlawful.
Neglecting to serve a Party Wall Notice can cost a Tottenham property owner far more money and hassle, and lead to far more animosity.
It is as much for the protection of you as you do the building work to your Tottenham home, as it is for your neighbour.
