Since the Government introduced party wall legislation across the whole of England & Wales in the form of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, we have acted as party wall surveyors for many private clients.  The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 covers three distinct types of work, alterations to a shared (party) wall, the construction of new walls on the boundary and excavation work close to neighboring properties. We work within the provisions of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 and the Act puts in place steps to safeguard the rights of those undertaking certain types of building work and the rights of their adjoining neighbours. The Party Wall Act works to protect the owner undertaking the works, through the party wall surveyors, by ensuring that the work is lawful, whilst also protecting their neighbour’s rights in the event of damage occurring.  We can issue and respond to all Party Wall notices, prepare Party Wall Awards and prepare schedule of conditions for both commercial and private clients.
