The Party Wall Act

Acting as Party Wall Surveyor under the Party Wall Act

Party wall surveying is governed by the legislation of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996.

Whether you are a building owner wanting to carry out works to a party wall (a wall you share with your neighbour), excavate close to a neighbouring property or build on or close to your boundary, or are an adjoining owner whose neighbour proposes to do any of those things, the Party Wall Act could apply to you.

Our experienced party wall surveyors, who know the Party Wall Act inside out, will guide their appointing owner clearly and impartially through its application, offer advice on the rights and remedies of the respective parties, and ensure that the statutory process runs smoothly.

We offer an efficient, professional service for building owners or adjacent owners from the service of Notices to the preparation of the Party Wall Award under the Party Wall Act.

 Our Party Wall services will generally encompass the following:

  • Initial consultation
  • Formalising appointments
  • Service of, and response to, Party Wall Notices in accordance with the Party Wall Act
  • Agreement of Party Wall Awards
  • Agreement of Schedules of Condition
  • Monitor works to ensure compliance with Party Wall Award under the Party Wall Act
  • Formal Sign-off from appointed surveyors

We can also advise Building owners at the scheme design stage whether the Party Wall Act applies to the works.

We are members of the Pyramus & Thisbe Club and the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors, both organisations promote the highest standards of professional practice in implementing the Party Wall Act.

We are pragmatic, efficient, and problem solvers.  Our professional service mitigates risk to all parties, and ensures that projects are able to progress without delay.
