Party wall matters
We regularly act for both building and adjoining owners in respect of party wall matters and are fully versed in the procedures of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 with over 35 years combined experience.
We act for either Building or Adjoining Owners on projects as diverse as small residential extensions up to multi-million pound commercial developments.
For Building Owners we serve the appropriate notices under the Act, liaise with the Adjoining Owner’s surveyors, prepare the Schedules of Condition, prepare and agree the Party Wall Awards and attend to any matters during the works and sign off the awards upon completion.
For Adjoining Owners we will check that the notices have been served correctly, agree the Schedule of Condition with the building owner’s surveyor and agree the Party Wall Award.
A final inspection is undertaken at the end of the works to confirm that no damage has occured.
In the unfortunate event that damage has occured, we will agree with the Building Owner’s surveyor the necessary repairs or a financial payment.
It should be noted that our professional fees for acting as adjoining owner’s surveyor are in all but a few cases always payable by the building owner. Please call us to discuss your requirements.
