How can an Party Wall Expert help?

Handling Party Wall Disputes

Party wall disputes occur when property owners who share a common wall, fence, or structure experience disagreements or conflicts related to construction, repairs, or modifications. These situations can occasionally result in misunderstandings among neighbours. To effectively tackle and resolve such disputes, it’s essential to adhere to established legal protocols and prioritise open communication and cooperation. Achieving a fair and amicable resolution, often guided by party wall surveyors or experts, guarantees that everyone’s concerns are acknowledged and dealt with, preserving a harmonious neighbourly relationship.

Handing out Party Wall Notices

Party Wall Notices are official notifications dispatched by property owners to their neighbours when they intend to perform construction, renovation, or maintenance activities that could impact a shared wall, fence, or structure. These notices constitute a crucial component of the party wall process, serving the purpose of educating neighbours about the forthcoming work and their legal entitlements. Sending a Party Wall Notice not only demonstrates courtesy but also fulfills a legal obligation, ensuring transparency and fostering open communication with neighbours. It facilitates constructive discussions among all involved parties, enabling the early resolution of any concerns and proactively averting potential disputes in the future.

Party Wall Agreements

A Party Wall Agreement, also known as a Party Wall Award, is a significant legal contract that delineates the rights and obligations of property owners, commonly known as “parties,” when they share a mutual wall, fence, or structure. This agreement is activated in situations involving construction, renovation, or maintenance projects that impact this shared boundary. Essentially, it serves as a clear guideline, ensuring everyone understands their rights and limitations concerning the shared structure. This proactive approach minimizes misunderstandings and conflicts, promoting a professional and equitable resolution of matters.

Brett was totally across all aspects of the survey we needed for purchasing our new home. He advise what level of survey we needed and engaged with the agent and seller directly. He then talked us through his findings immediately after the inspection which was incredibly helpful. And his report was suitably comprehensive.

We appointed Brett Ray of Richmond Futures in end May to do a Level 2 Survey for a house we intend to purchase. Our experience with Brett have been a very pleasant one. Throughout the process, from quotation enquiry to receiving the report, Brett's response have been fast and proactive. He conducted the survey a few days after the appointment and issued the report in two or three day's time, and in such good detail that we as buyers would want to know about the property with a level 2 survey. In our case, he even drew to our attention a potential on-street parking issue which we were not sure if other level 2 report would normally cover. His report is user-friendly, supported with a good number of site photos to illustrate his observations and recommendations. After issuing the report he offered to do a zoom meeting to go through the main points with us and answer our queries directly, which we found it a very good way to wrap up the whole process. One last point to mention is that while Brett does not do property valuation himself he has been very helpful to have introduced several professional valuation surveyors to us to meet our needs.

Excellent service, we were restricted on time and Westville managed to get our survey booked in and completed in a few days. A comprehensive report, with pictures, which was followed up with a phone call to talk through any concerns we had, explaining all the details and allowing us to understand the impact of the results and what remedial work was required. They were always on hand to answer any questions and communication was 5*. I can highly recommend this company and will definitely be using them in the future.
