    9 months ago our neighbour signed up to a surveyors cold call letter approach straight after our planning application approved. I don't know the contents of the cold call letter but I suspect it was intended to provoke immediate action in an unnecessary way.

    1 month ago we actually served notice re party wall adjacent excavation

    Our neighbour had forgotten they had signed up and have no issue with our proposals. They are keen to ditch the cold calling surveyor and use our agreed surveyor for the schedule of conditions.

    I am under the impression that consent or dissent cannot be stated until AFTER party wall notice is served.

    Does anyone have any experience of this and able to advise if our neighbour and us in turn can ignore the first surveyor firm ?

    That's right. The Act is not invoked until you serve notice, and so there is no authority to instruct a surveyor (or for a surveyor take an instruction) until the Act is in play.
