Party Wall Surveyors in The West End

The West End is one of the busiest and most architecturally diverse areas of Central London. Historically home to the performing arts, it is now central to London’s nightlife.

Many of the building and construction projects underway are linked to new hospitality and entertainment industry initiatives. For a party wall surveyor, West End projects present a range of exciting and dynamic projects.

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 have a track record of restaurants, bars, nightclubs and other hospitality venues.

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 work with West End landowners and property owners that need to serve a Party Wall Notice prior to any works taking place. We can manage West End Party Wall Awards that set out everyone’s legal protection. Finally, we can supervise any 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 West End 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 West End Party Wall discussions. Contact us to find out more.
