We are happy to advise upon and deal with projects of all sizes. We regularly deal with both residential and commercial matters ranging from loft conversions and home extensions to replacement dwellings and multi-million pound development sites.
The principles remain the same regardless of the project size and we will happily offer tailor made individual fee quotations for each project. We are just as happy dealing with home owners as we are with developers, building owners and adjoining owners. Much of our client base being introduced to us by architects, engineers, solicitors and designers that wish to see their clients properly represented.
The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 provides a framework for preventing and resolving disputes in relation to party walls, some boundary walls and excavations near neighbouring buildings and structures.
Building owners proposing to carry out work covered by the Act must give adjoining owners proper notice of their intentions in the way set down in the Act. Adjoining owners can agree or disagree with what is proposed. Where they disagree, the Act provides a mechanism for resolving disputes by appointed surveyors. The requirements of the Act are separate from the need to obtain planning permission, building regulation approval and with leaseholders often a licence to alter.
