This paper considers the entire process leading to the making of a valid award under section 10 of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. The powers and duties of the appointed surveyors, the validity of their appointment, and the effect of their awards are examined. The validity of some of the commonly used award clauses is also commented upon. The paper also considers agreements between the parties insofar as they might affect a dispute and the subsequent award. Finally, examples are provided as to where liability might lie for failure to produce a valid award, with important warnings for appointed surveyors.
