Party Wall Surveyors in Camden


Camden is one of London’s best-known districts stretching North from Charing Cross and St. Pancras areas. It is home to some of the capital’s most impressive industrial architecture including famous examples surrounding its canal network. Today, any hard industry has been replaced by retail, tourism and entertainment and the area hosts street markets and music venues strongly associated with alternative culture. If you are building against a boundary wall in the area, it may well reflect this mixed usage.

Fresson and Tee is a Property Consultancy and Party Wall Surveyor based in London. We work on construction, redevelopment, refurbishment and change-of-use projects. As a result, we are well placed to work with you to overcome any challenges you are facing in the area, particularly around mixed-use post-industrial buildings such as those you might find in Camden.

We typically provide Party Wall Surveys for multiple parties through joint instruction. We can, of course, also act for a single owner too. Whatever issues you are dealing with, contact our party wall surveyors in Camden and we can discuss the best way forward.

Do I Need A Party Wall Surveyor?

Any major building against a party wall, including in Camden, requires party wall surveyors if they include major work affecting a boundary between two buildings as defined by the Party Wall Act of 1996. What does a party wall surveyor do? They provide fair, transparent and independent surveys that make sure building work affecting neighbouring properties is compliant with the Law.

What is the Party Wall Act?

The Party Wall Act of 1996 controls building work or excavation involving boundaries between land or property owned by two or more separate entities.

The legislation ensures that all parties’ interests are protected by preventing building work that could undermine the structural integrity of shared walls or neighbouring property features. Compliance means a Party Wall Issue needs to be issued and a Party Wall Agreement signed prior to any work commencing.

Who pays for a Party Wall Surveyor?

Party wall surveyor costs in Camden, as with elsewhere, are typically met by the property owner that instigates any work. There may be an argument for asking other parties to contribute to costs if the work needs to be done because of defects or lack of repair on their part. 

Neighbours may also be asked to contribute if they ask for additional work to be done that will benefit them.

Independent professional advice is the key to success. We can provide this, and more, on any aspect of Camden Party Wall matters. Contact us to find out more.
