The Party Wall Consultancy is a niche practice of consultant Chartered Building Surveyors set up in 2009 to specialise in all matters associated with the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 ("the Act").
We were the very first specialist surveying practice devoted entirely to the administration of the Act and have been much emulated by similarly named companies ever since. However, few such companies can rival our legal and technical expertise.
We provide expert consultancy in the effective administration of the Act and the efficient resolution of 'disputes' arising from the service of notice in order to ensure the notified works proceed lawfully and in accordance with the rights of the involved parties.
We act for Building Owners in identifying the 'notifiability' of their proposed works and to prepare the requisite notices for service upon the Adjoining Owner(s). In the event of a 'dispute' following service of notice, we act in accordance with section 10(1) of the Act, either as the jointly appointed 'Agreed Surveyor', or as the 'Building Owner's Appointed Surveyor'.
We also act for Adjoining Owners where notice has been received and a dispute has arisen. Again, we will then act in accordance with section 10(1) of the Act, either as the jointly appointed 'Agreed Surveyor', or as the 'Adjoining Owner's Appointed Surveyor'.
Our principal surveyor, James McAllister, also accepts selection as the 'Third Surveyor' under section 10(1)(b) of the Act and regularly accepts Expert Witness appointments in appeal proceedings.
