Party wall surveyor - available in Lincolnshire and the East Midlands

A party wall is a structure which separates adjoining buildings, or a free-standing wall which sits astride the boundary between two adjoining properties. 

The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 was created to minimise potential disputes between neighbours. It allows homeowners to carry out work on or next to a shared wall, whilst also protecting the interests of anyone else who might be affected by that work.

For more information, contact Alex Rosen Associates Ltd today.

Work covered by the Party Wall etc. Act 1996:

•  New building work at or astride the boundary between two properties
•  Structural work affecting an existing party wall, including repairs, alterations, damp proofing or underpinning
•  Excavating and constructing foundations within three metres of an adjoining property
Before carrying out work covered by the Act, the agreement of the adjoining owner(s) must be obtained. We can issue statutory notices to the adjoining owner(s) on the client’s behalf. If agreement cannot be reached between the owners, both parties each appoint their own surveyor(s) or jointly appoint an agreed surveyor, to determine a fair and impartial party wall award. The owner who is carrying out the work normally pays the surveyor’s fees.

Alex Rosen can act as party wall surveyor for either the building owner or the adjoining owner or as an agreed surveyor for both parties.
