Expert representation for owners and their neighbours
We are party wall and boundary experts. We work for building owners who want to carry out construction work that affects neighbouring buildings, and also represent neighbours when work is being undertaken in adjoining properties.
It’s a complex area of law and practice so it needs the insight and negotiating skills only someone with our depth of experience can provide. Involve us at an early stage and we can work with your design team to shape the project, so reaching agreement with the neighbours will be straightforward and quick. We can help you explore what’s possible if you’re considering a redevelopment, so you can maximise the potential of your property and, at the same time, manage your exposure to risk.
The heart of our business is acting as Building or Adjoining Owner’s Surveyor under The Party Wall etc. Act. These formal, statutory roles give us the authority to represent you effectively, so we can negotiate agreements between you and your neighbours to allow building work to proceed smoothly and without disruption.
For neighbours, we focus on protecting their properties and minimising the potential impact of being next door to noisy and potentially disruptive work.
Beyond this we’re boundary experts. Even where the Party Wall Act doesn’t apply, we can provide practical advice on dealing the neighbours, whether it’s seeking their agreement for building work on your land or protecting your interest if your neighbours are planning to carry out work themselves.
Whatever your property interests, you need our protection.
