Whether you are a Neighbour who has been contacted regarding a development or a building owner who is about to start a proposed development
Are you the adjoining owner to works?
Are you the building owner undertaking works?
Our range of services include:
We will identify Owners who require relevant Notices; progress discussions with the Adjoining Owners and their appointed Surveyors; prepare Schedules of Condition; put Awards in place; resolve any disputes and carry out final inspections to discharge the liability under any Awards.
We will negotiate a Party Wall Award, which is a legal document that lists the works allowed under the Act and certain rights & restrictions for both the works and the contractors on site. Upon completion of the works, we will recheck the Schedule of condition and if any damage has been caused by the works, negotiate the repairs.
