Section 10 (6) and 10 (7) of the act foresees and allows for inadequate Party Wall Surveyors if an owner fails in due diligence in their appointment.

(6)If a surveyor refuses to act effectively, the surveyor of the other party may proceed to act ex parte and anything so done by him shall be as effectual as if he had been an agreed surveyor.

(7)If a surveyor neglects to act effectively for a period of ten days beginning with the day on which either party or the surveyor of the other party serves a request on him, the surveyor of the other party may proceed to act ex parte in respect of the subject matter of the request and anything so done by him shall be as effectual as if he had been an agreed surveyor.
