Access Agreements

With a pro-active approach and effective management our team of advisors can help you promptly resolve access agreement issues.

As property development regularly entails building close or directly adjacent to boundaries, it is important to consider what kind of access might be needed to bordering properties in order to carry out construction.

Construction access to neighbouring properties is granted under certain conditions by the Access to Neighbouring Land Act 1992 and the Party Wall etc. Act 1996; however, the benefits of these statutes are limited.

Certain types of access, such as crane oversail or the erection of scaffolding and hoardings, will, unless previously agreed and documented, require the express consent of the adjoining owner.

A diplomatic approach is required in such matters and we are on hand to provide you with both strategic and practical guidance needed to obtain the necessary access agreements. With our wealth of experience in negotiating with property owners and managing the various issues involved, and our strong focus on service, we can deliver the outcomes you need.
