Access Agreements & Crane Oversail

Access Agreements and Crane Oversail

It is frequently the case that architects and clients develop designs which build up to the boundary line. If the Party Wall Act 1996 is invoked, access may well be granted to construct all or part of the construction adjacent to the boundary. Where the Act does not apply, access cannot be automatically assumed and would likely constitute trespass without an agreement in place. This position follows the ruling in John Trenberth-v-National Westminster Bank (1979), where an injunction was granted against trespassing scaffold erected to maintain one of the bank’s buildings. CPMC are accustomed to dealing with access agreements for our clients and we would be pleased to provide you with advice or agree access licence terms, undertake a schedule of condition and complete the necessary documentation.
