(Figure 2.a) Naylor Court construction project where the stable at 1316 9th Street rear proved to be so solid, that in the process of its destruction, the literal “party wall” in VIP Lounge in the nightclub next to it (now the MOOD Lounge) was breached, exposing speakers and dry wall.
- Each person owns as much of a party wall as is situated on (their) land.
- Each owner acquires title to one-half the wall and an easement for its support as a party wall in the other half.
- A party wall that is constructed without any reference to a time limitation implies permanency.
- A party wall is for the mutual benefit and convenience of both owners. Each adjoining owner has the right to its full use as a party wall in the improvement and enjoyment of his property. Neither owner can use the wall in a manner that impairs the other's easement or interferes with his or her property rights.
- Either party can replace a party wall that is dangerous to life or property or insufficient for the support of existing buildings.
- Neither owner has any right to have a dangerous wall bolstered by allowing it to rest upon, or be sustained by, the timbers, walls, or parts of the other's building.
