We offer a comprehensive low cost fixed fee service from just £499.00 for preparation of party wall awards, which includes undertaking legal searches, preparing bespoke notices for your project, undertaking a schedule of condition and producing a Party Wall Award, for private residential property, offices and shops in the London and surrounding areas. We can act for either or both parties and offer a cost-effective and fast method of protecting all parties whilst complying fully with the Party Wall Act.
The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 covers different types of works; alterations to a shared party wall, the construction of new walls on the boundary and excavation work close to the neighbouring properties. The last is often overlooked by owners planning to extend their property.
Where works falls within the scope of the Party Wall Act, it is required that the Building Owner serve notices and obtain the affected Adjoining Owner(s) consent to the works, if that consent is not forthcoming the parties are deemed to be ‘in dispute’ under the Party Wall Act and Party Wall Surveyors must be appointed so that this dispute can be resolved by way of a Party Wall Agreement (referred to as an ‘Award.’)
Christopher Anthony Surveyors always advise Building Owners to speak to their neighbours before serving the formal notice.
We had a rush to find a Party Wall specialist and spoke with many companies. Tony was by far the most approachable, knowledgeable and quick to understand what we needed and started the next day including contacting both neighbours and explaining the process. It was completed with minimum fuss for everyone concerned. Highly recommended.
