We’ve been resolving party wall disputes in Hampton since 2007. Whether we are dealing with the removal of a chimney breast that backs on to a party wall or a double storey basement extension, our focus is on finding a fair balance between the building owner’s desire to complete their works as quickly as possible and the need to minimise risk and inconvenience to adjoining owners.
If you are about to buy your first Hampton property you can also take advantage the experience of our team of Chartered Surveyors can offer. We can provide a range of pre-purchase surveys but the best way to decide which one best suits your needs is to call us on the number above for an initial consultation.
A common misconception adjoining owners have is that party wall surveyors have the power to deal with every aspect of building works that has the potential to affect them. The planning process and the party wall process are entirely separate and party walls surveyors have no say over planning decisions.
One of our team of Surveyors, James Merewether, recently acted for adjoining owners in a party wall dispute in Hampton regarding the construction of a large rear and side return extension proposed by their neighbours. Although the building works were extensive and the adjoining owners had various concerns, James carefully explained that the only part of the works falling within the scope of the Act was the excavation of the foundations to the flank wall of the extension (being within 3 metres of their property).
The Award was served and works completed without any issues, much to the relief of the adjoining owners.
