  Neighbourly Matters …
  Every property owner has neighbours and staying friends while you deal with property repairs, development or maintenance can be difficult and stressful. Neighbourly relations often deteriorate at such times which is why there are Legal controls in place to deal with disagreements.

Party walls and neighbourly issues are principally governed by the Party Wall etc Act 1996. If you are planning to develop or alter a site or own property next to a planned development then the Act will probably affect you.

Our surveyors work on behalf of both building owners and adjoining owners and sympathetically negotiate the best outcome for all in these situations. By focussing on the needs of each party our surveyors have the experience to negotiate an agreement and ensure that all achieve a sensible outcome.
