Party Wall Agreements

Party Wall Agreements

In England and Wales, works to party walls, and excavations close to neighbouring buildings are governed by the Party Wall etc Act 1996. Notice must be served for relevant works and when an adjoining owner dissents to a notice the two owners have to either agree the appointment of a surveyor, or each appoint a surveyor, to resolve the matters in dispute. It is important that any surveyor appointed has a good working knowledge of the Party Wall Act, and a good knowledge of construction detailing and practice.

We are experienced Party Wall Surveyors and can assist with comprehensive advice to guide you through the process.

We provide a high standard of professional integrity whether we are acting on behalf of the ‘Building Owner’ (those doing the work), the ‘Adjoining Owner’ (those affected by neighbouring works) or jointly as the ‘Agreed Surveyor’.

We serve the relevant Notices, undertake Schedules of Condition and produce the Party Wall Awards.

We are Members of The Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors and the Pyramus and Thisbe Club.
