What if Scaffolds will be needed in my neighbors property?
It is only allowable to erect scaffolding on a neighbor’s property when they expressly give permission In some cases, there’s no other option than to erect some of the scaffolds on a neighboring property. In these situations it is very important to ask for permission.
Special note for L shape Dormer conversions- In order to safely raise the party wall or clad the party wall side of the dormer and outrigger, we will require a scaffold platform to be erected on your adjoining owners rear and rear outrigger roof for our teams to safely access this area.
Naturally, most property owners would likely appraise their neighbors of the situation and ask permission. Hopefully, cooperation would prevail and permission is given – Where a full party wall agreement or signed notice is in place this must be discussed with your neighbors and agreed beforehand and if required by the neighbor included in any party wall agreement.
