If you're planning to carry out building work that could potentially affect a shared wall, boundary or structure between you and your neighbour our Party Wall Notices and Awards service is designed to help you navigate the complex legal requirements of the Party Wall Act 1996.
We have a team of experienced surveyors who will guide you through the process, ensuring that all necessary notices are served correctly and that your neighbour's rights are protected.
It is always advisable to seek advice from a party wall expert if you are carrying out major renovations which might affect a party wall or boundary – or if a neighbour is planning to carry out renovations or has started on renovations which might affect a party wall between you.
It's important to understand your rights in the process and should a dispute occur, you have support in place to help you.
We will also assist in resolving the dispute by offering professional building advice to all parties to ensure the matter is handled according to the party wall act.
If an agreement cannot be reached, we will assist in awarding a party wall award. We will check the condition of the party wall, works to be carried out, protective measures needed, work timescales and a schedule for our inspections.
