    Party wall from shared freeholders

    We have a loft conversion planned to our top floor period conversion flat. Party wall agreements are in place with our downstairs neighbours and next door on one side. Next door on the other side are also two flats who share a freehold. The top floor owner has agreed to the work on condition of a schedule of condition being completed for the whole property, which we've agreed to. The downstairs owner is in the process of selling, has already vacated the property himself, and won't respond to our notification. We are due to start mid-October so time is running out now. Anyone have thoughts on options? Is it worth the risk of just starting, with the consent of one of the shared freeholders and a schedule of condition completed?

    What does your party wall surveyor suggest?

      The party wall surveyor realised last week that he sent the original notification to only one of the owners so has now restarted the entire process with both owners names on the notification. He is suggesting we go by the book and run the process through. He says that if the neighbour's sale goes through before he responds then we will need to start the entire process again with new neighbours.

      Given that these neighbours' flat isn't even on the same level as us, and that we have already agreed to a schedule of condition to cover the entire freehold regardless, I wonder what the actual risk is of just proceeding.

        Isn't it just a case of sending the notices out? If they don't respond then that's their problem.

        My understanding is there is no actual 'agreement' to be made as such, just a notification and its acceptance or otherwise.
