How a survey can save you more than money

Party Wall Surveying Services
Our Party Wall Surveyors have noticed a rise in requests to evoke the Party Wall etc Act 1996 in recent years, as home owners choose to extend their properties in favour of moving.
The Party Wall etc Act 1996 provides a framework for preventing and resolving disputes – these often arise when neighbours choose to extend/alter their properties and carry out excavations or changes near to party walls, boundary walls or neighbouring buildings.
This act is separate to obtaining planning permission or building regulations approval. We can help advise any builder or home owner on how to invoke the act – giving adjoining home/land owners notice of your intentions to build or make alterations.
To find out more about the Party Wall etc Act 1996, please call Chauntry Surveying on 01628 421504 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
