As one of the largest Party Wall Teams in London, we can draw from a wealth of experience to advise developers or neighbours on how they are affected by the Party Wall Act and construction related issues.
Party Walls is not just a box ticking exercise, our early involvement can help developers manage potential liabilities and advise neighbours on how to protect their property during proposed works.
The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 provides rights to developing owners and safeguards for adjoining owners.
For developers, we can advise on the pre-planning stage on likely issues including where the Party Wall Act applies, the strategic approach for dealing with neighbouring properties and rights of access with respect to crane oversail or scaffold access agreements/licences.
For neighbours we can advise on what to expect and how their own property can be protected during proposed works.
With Anstey Horne’s joined up approach, we are often able to identify potential Right of Light or Building Surveying opportunities to assist the developers and their proposed schemes.
