The Party Wall Act can have huge implications on development. We have a thorough understanding of this specialist legislation – and the expertise needed to create fair, balanced outcomes for all parties involved.

Party Wall and Neighbourly Matters

When planned building work has the potential to impact on neighbouring properties, our Party Wall and Neighbourly Matters team offers impartial advice.

We’re specialists in party wall legislation and advise on different types of structures for clients of all sizes – from basement expansions through to new office block construction and even specialist areas like assessing possible impact on canal ‘banana’ or ‘tie back’ walls.

We also advise clients across the UK on neighbourly matters, including scaffolding and crane agreements, access to neighbouring land and ransom strips.

Our highly experienced team is headed up by Michael Cooper, who co-authored the current RICS party wall guidance for surveyors.
