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 the largest specialist team of Party Wall surveyors based 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.
Our expertise avoids the “box ticking” service of others. We strive for an early involvement and proactive approach that helps developers manage any risk and liability, or allows for early advise to 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. This includes advice on the strategic approach for dealing with neighbouring properties as well as rights of access with respect to crane oversail or scaffold access agreements and licences for instance.
If you are a Building Owner planning to carry out building works on your property that might be covered by the Party Wall Act we would strongly recommend that you have your plans checked by a suitably qualified and experienced party wall surveyor before work starts.

We advise neighbours (Adjoining Owners) on what to expect and how their own property should be protected during proposed works.
