We have a team of highly experienced party wall surveyors ready to advise if you’re planning works falling within the scope of the Act to your Bow property. The process starts with the party planning to undertake works notifying any affected owners.
We can prepare the necessary party wall notices for a nominal fee. In our experience, adjoining owners receiving a notice that has been professionally prepared by a specialist surveyor are more likely to consent or, if they have concerns, concur in the agreement of a single surveyor. Having a single agreed surveyor is the quickest and most cost-effective option where disputes has arisen.
Below you will find links to the hundreds of positive reviews we’ve received from both building owners and adjoining owners in and around Bow and, so you can be sure you’re in the best possible hands, the company is regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
One of our Associate Directors, Matthew Price, acted as the adjoining owner’s surveyor on a project just to the north of Mile End Park in Bow where the building owner had recently served notice under the provisions of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. The proposals included a basement extension.
The adjoining owner, who had previously extended into his own basement, was unaware that he would be due a payment when the building owner made use of the underpinning that was constructed at his expense. The payment was agreed between the surveyors and would become due when the use was made.
The adjoining owner was also made aware of his right to request security for expenses in accordance with section 12 of the Act (essentially pot of money set aside for the work to be complete in the event that the works were not completed). An appropriate figure was agreed by the surveyors, providing the adjoining owner with peace of mind during the works.

Located in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, Bow is a residential area in the East End of London.
Bow is an area that is fast becoming popular with people trying to find new and more inexpensive areas that are fairly central. Bow is close to the City and also to Docklands so there are plenty of advantages to living here for City workers and new apartment blocks have been springing up to cater for the influx of new residents. However, there is still very much an East End feel to much of Bow with many people having lived here their whole lives and remaining staunchly proud of their cockney roots.
