Carter Lemon Camerons has successfully appealed against a Party Wall Award, securing costs for its client.
The case, SAI Ventures Ltd v Compar Properties Ltd, related to the development of 41 Pitfield Street, Shoreditch and whether two Party Wall notices given by the building owner covered a later change to the plans, whether a new notice was required and whether the adjoining owner had waived their right to a new notice.
The case, which was heard by Judge Hand QC at London’s County Court, was found in favour of Carter Lemon Camerons LLP’s client, SAI Ventures Ltd and a costs award was made.
Litigation Partner Lisa Ginesi, said: “I’m delighted with this outcome, which we’ve worked hard to secure for our client.
“The Judge has confirmed that building owners must follow the letter of the law and serve a formal notice whenever plans change, as they did in this case.”
