Section 5 – Disputes under sections 3 and 4

If an owner on whom a party structure notice or a counter notice has been served does not serve a notice indicating his consent to it within the period of fourteen days beginning with the day on which the party structure notice or counter notice was served, he shall be deemed to have dissented from the notice and a dispute shall be deemed to have arisen between the parties.

The surveyors can only deal with issues that arise out of the notice for which they are appointed, and cannot deal with potential future works (Leadbetter v Marylebone Corporation [No. 1])
