    The extension is not free, if they decide in future to build an extension then they will have to cough up for using the new party wall.

    You can appoint your own surveyor and ask them to the pay - well, they have to pay. also, if you do not respond to their party wall notice (not a random letter from a party wall solicitor) within 2 weeks it is assume you dissent, and a surveyor is needed.

    My old neighbours refused to comply (because they were total dicks), so I had to get surveyors. Lucky a local chap did it all for £300, which was a lot less than the party wall cowboys wanted to charge - never reply to those cold letters through the door, they automatically send out whenever they see extension on he planning pages!
