Specialist Party Wall Surveyors
Our sister company CHPK provide Party Wall Surveyors in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Gloucester, Surrey and throughout the UK. We can undertake the role of surveyor for building owners and adjoining owners, or the role of agreed surveyor, or just provide general advice as required.
The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 provides the framework for preventing and resolving disputes in relation to party walls, boundary walls and adjacent excavations near buildings or structures.
- Acting on behalf of Building Owners – As party wall advisors we have acted for numerous building owners serving all relevant notices, preparing schedules of condition and agreeing party wall awards in close liaison with architects and engineers. We have provided party wall surveyor services for buildings located near to all of our regional offices and continue to do so to ensure lawful building work can proceed. We deal with works relating to party walls, boundary walls and excavations near neighbouring buildings.
- Acting on behalf of Adjoining Owners – We regularly act for adjoining owners where party wall notices have been served upon them to ensure they are correctly represented under the Act and the correct legal procedures are followed prior to works commencing on site.
- Acting on behalf of both owners as Agreed Surveyor – We act for both owners where they have both agreed that a single surveyor is suitable to determine the matter in dispute. This option is most suitable where the matter/s in dispute are not contentious and normally of a simple nature or connected to residential type works, and is more cost effective for fees.
