This case came before the court initially as a party wall appeal, but was followed by a boundary dispute brought by the adjoining owner. In the event, the court’s decision on the boundary claim (in favour of the adjoining owner) meant that the adjoining owner’s appeal against the party wall award also succeeded.

I have featured the case because it is a good demonstration of (1) a party wall surveyor making an award (quite properly) on the basis of what he considered to be the correct boundary line, but (2) an adjoining owner subsequently challenging that award successfully by way of a boundary claim.

The full judgment can be found here.
