With a lease, you own the property (subject to the terms of the lease) for the duration of your lease with the free owner. When the lease ends, the property is returned to the free owner, unless you can renew the lease. Most apartments and duplexes are in possession of a lease, so while you own your property in the building, you have no part in the building in which it is located. Some houses are sold as leases. If so, you own the land, but not the land on which it sits. Ok, now that we`re clear about renting and condo let`s see what to do if you serve messages to apartments that have both tenants and tenants. The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 specifies that the party wall instructions must be served on all owners of the land. These include the tenants involved and the freeholder. Before delivery, you should receive full details from all adjacent owners of the Land Registry website. This will give a clear indication of who the adjacent owners (neighbours) are, and that is where the communications should be sent.
From a legal point of view, both a tenant and a free landlord are considered «owners» under the Party Wall etc. Act of 1996 and are therefore both legally taxed before the start of construction of the party wall. For example, if the owner`s house is adjacent to a large block of dwellings with a free owner and with several tenants on the ground floor and first floor, all within the decretable distances prescribed in the party wall, etc., 1996.In this would mean that the owner should serve several references to multiple adjacent owners. This would result not only in a significant delay in the work proposed by the contractor, but also a significant survey cost for which the owner will be responsible. Our Wall Surveyors experts have already faced such situations and are experienced in reducing the number of dissenting parties in order to reduce the number of party wall awards required.
