Perhaps one of the most controversial areas of surveying, party walls involve putting in place an agreement between two neighbouring parties to ensure that notifiable works will be undertaken with due consideration to the adjoining owner.
We act for both Building Owners (those intending to undertake the works) and Adjoining Owners (those that have had a notice served on them).
Our principal role is to ensure the following:-
Establishing the necessity for party wall notices to be served.
The correct notices are served and deadlines are met.
The scope of works and method of works has been agreed to ensure minimal disruption.
A comprehensive schedule of condition is recorded and agreed.
A suitable party wall award is agreed.
In undertaking this role HAB Consult utilises both their knowledge of The Party Wall Act 1996 and their diplomacy to ensure that the party wall process runs smoothly.
