We were recently appointed by the adjoining owner on a project in Clapton where notice had been served by the building owner in relation to a side return extension. One of our most experienced party wall surveyors, Matthew Price, took on the appointment and was assisted by Callum Escott.
Notice had been served under section 1 of the Act, indicating a desire to construct the flank wall to the extension up to the boundary line. The adjoining owner was nervous about the project, having previously had neighbours undertake works where relations had soured due to how poorly they were managed.
Matthew advised the building owner that as notice had been served, the neighbours had a right of access to facilitate the construction of the flank wall of the extension. He negotiated the terms of access which included protective screening for windows, doors and grounds along with a time period attached to the access right so that the inconvenience to the adjoining owner was limited.

The different areas of Clapton merge together and yet still manage to remain distinctive. Upper Clapton is in the London Borough of Hackney and it lies east of Stoke Newington and west of the River Lea.
Upper Clapton is becoming more popular and there are plenty of open, green spaces for residents to enjoy in the surrounding area. These include Springfield Park and North Mill Fields and they help to give Upper Clapton more of a suburban, out-of-town feel than some of the more built-up, inner city areas that are close by. There are numerous sports facilities and decent bars and restaurants to entice people to move here in order to work their way up the property ladder. Housing is varied with a good selection of period housing, as well as flats and apartments.
Upper Clapton has a mainline station but no nearby underground. The station is in zone 2 and trains run to London Liverpool Street in just over 10 minutes.
