other party structure, and be made use of by the adjoining owner, then a sum of money proportionate to the value of so much of such new party wall, as shall be so made use of, and also a proportionate part of all expenses, which shall be necessary for pulling down the old timber partition or other party structure.

If a party wall or party arch already built, or hereafter rebuilt, be used by any adjoining owner, then a sum of money proportionate to the value of so much of such party structure, as the adjoining owner shall use, deduction being made where proper, for the value of old materials. And of every case the whole of the reasonable expenses of the shoring up the adjoining building, and of removing any goods, furniture, or other things therein, and of pulling down any wainscot or partition; and also such surveyor's fees, and other fees payable in respect of any acts performed by the official referees, and also such other costs as may have been awarded by the official referees.

Üntil such expenses shall be so paid, every person at whose expense, such party structure shall have been built, is hereby entitled to, and shall be possessed of, the sole property thereof, and of the ground whereon it stands, and the same shall be vested entirely in the person, at whose expense, such party structure shall have been built.

To recover the cost of building, it is necessary within 21 days after the completion of the work for the building owner, to deliver to the adjoining owner, an account in writing of the expenses of the work, and a copy of the same to the official referees at their office. This account must contain the number of rods or parts of rods of brickwork, digging, concrete, stonework, and all other materials and labour, as well as the prices, also any deduction for the old materials, which the adjoining owner may be entitled to. Also an account of the other expenses, incidental to the work, as those of the fees, &c.

When the account has been approved by the official referees, then the person entitled to such costs and expenses, may demand payment; and if the party liable to pay does not appeal against or pay the same within ten days, then it is lawful for the person entitled to recover the same, by the summary proceeding hereby provided.
