Access Agreements & Crane Oversail

Before embarking on your project, it is important to consider whether you need to take access over neighbouring land and whether you have a right to do so without a private agreement.

There is usually no automatic right to gain access for your scaffold or for the crane to oversail unless in pursuance of the Party Wall etc Act 1996. Taking access without permission will invariably constitute a trespass. Please see here for further information on access agreements.

In addition to access agreements and crane oversail matters, we would be pleased to assist with regards to the Party Wall Act 1996, schedules of condition, rights of light and daylight and sunlight analysis for planning.

Information on these services is available here.
