Party Wall & Neighbourly Matters

Our team were instrumental in the development of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 which provides rights to developing owners and safeguards for adjoining property owners.

With this expertise and one of the largest specialist Party Wall surveying teams across the UK, we draw on a wealth of experience to advise developers or neighbours alike on how they are affected by the Act and other construction related issues.

Party Wall advice

Our expertise prevents  the “box ticking” service of others. We strive for an early involvement and proactive approach that helps developers manage  liabilities and advise neighbours on how best to protect their property during proposed works.

No matter the size of a project, from large commercial developments to managing the impact on neighbours of a modest residential scheme, we apply the same expertise, care and attention to detail.

We advise at 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 and licences.

With Anstey Horne’s joined up approach, we are often able to identify and mitigate potential Rights of Light or Building Consultancy issues to assist the developers and their proposed schemes.
