Party Wall Surveyors in Holborn
Holborn is one of the busiest commercial areas of Central London.
With historic links to the legal profession and close to the West End, the district is now home to a strong mixed economy and, it seems, lots of building and construction projects.
As a result, if you are a party wall surveyor, Holborn’s property business has the potential to keep you busy.
The good news is Fresson and Tee have been the party wall surveyor London builders, property owners and professionals have turned to for many years.
As a result, we are well placed to work with you to answer any questions and overcome any challenges you are facing.
We typically work on behalf of owners on both sides through a joint instruction. We can, of course, also act for a single owner liaising with other surveyors if required. Whatever party wall issue you are facing, contact us and we can discuss the best way forward.
Do I Need A Party Wall Surveyor?
Your need for a party wall surveyor will be defined by the Party Wall Act of 1996.
This regulates building and construction involving walls that divide the land of two or more owners. Each owners’ rights and responsibilities are enshrined in legislation.
We can work with landowners to serve a Party Wall Notice prior to any works taking place, manage a Party Wall Award to set out everyone’s legal protection and supervise building against a party wall in line with the Act.
Who pays for a party wall surveyor?
In summary, you need to pay for survey costs associated with building works that you start on a party wall.
There may be an argument for asking the other party to contribute to costs if the work needs to be done because of defects or lack of repair on their part. They can also be asked to contribute if they ask for additional works to be done that will benefit them.
We can provide independent advice on any aspect of Party Wall discussions. Contact us to find out more.
Any local Party Wall experience will clearly prove valuable to any work in Holburn and the surrounding area. Fresson and Tee can draw on many case study examples in the area, so you can be confident in our services. You can read about specific examples of our work through our website’s case studies section.
