Party Wall Surveyors

The Party Wall etc Act 1996 applies to the whole of England & Wales. It confers rights and duties on a commercial or residential developer carrying out certain works that might affect an adjoining property or structure. It allows the developers to proceed expeditiously, but they must first notify any adjoining owners.

We can assist with the following:

For the Developer (Building Owner)

  • Advise on the rights imposed and obligations conveyed by the Act, identify which elements of the proposed works fall within the remit of the Act and which do not, identify ownership interests in adjoining properties, prepare and serve Notices, prepare and agree schedules of condition, prepare Party Wall Awards and resolve any issues of damage or compensation.

For the Adjoining Owner

  • Advise on the validity of Notices received, consider details of works proposed to ensure that proposals are appropriate and will avoid causing unnecessary inconvenience, check and agree schedules of condition, negotiate the terms of Party Wall Awards and ensure that the building owner fulfils his statutory obligations.
