Party wall surveying work services.
Abp Chartered Architects offers the services of a party wall surveyor, independent of its architectural services.
Bernard, the head of practice, is a very experienced party wall surveyor and is a member of the Pyramus & Thisbe Club (a recognised party wall surveying club). He has been involved in numerous party wall negotiations and awards, under the requirements of the Party Wall etc Act 1996.
As a matter of principle, we do not provide party wall services to clients that have already engaged us as their architects. We feel it gives the opportunity for the client to save money, by way of having an “agreed surveyor”. It also removes any doubt that there is a conflict of interests between acting as party wall surveyor, which is an impartial role, and that of an architect, which has an agency role of behalf of the client.
The services of a party wall surveyor includes generally: serving of notices, preparing condition surveys and awards. The party wall surveyor also inspects the proposed works and possible effects on neighbouring properties, before, after and sometimes during construction, in order to report and hopefully mitigate damage to the neighbouring properties.
