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 Dalston 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 Dalston 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).
We recently negotiated a scaffold access licence to facilitate some refurbishment works to a commercial block on Shacklewell Lane in Dalston including treating some external timber cladding. The land over which the access was required is owned by a housing association.
Fortunately, the proposed scaffold did not adversely affect the use of the adjoining property as the proposed works were at high level and there was some flexibility with the positioning of the uprights.
Justin Burns, our director, agreed the terms of the license with the housing association’s in-house surveyor. The usual safeguards were agreed such as encapsulating the scaffold in sheeting, fitting luminous cushioned sleeves to the uprights and ensuring that ladders were pulled up when not in use to avoid unauthorised access. The works ran over the agreed 6 week period, which can often happen with refurbishment projects, but the adjoining owners were relaxed about it as the scaffold was not causing a nuisance to the residents.

Dalston has been home to a number of cinemas over the years, being something of an entertainment hub, but only one now remains, the Rio Cinema on the High Street. Originally built in 1909, it was remodelled by Cult architect FE Bromige in 1937 to provide the Art Deco appearance which we see today. These days the cinema shows the Hollywood staples as well classic matinees and community screenings.
Another building in the area of architectural interest is the Grade II listed German Hospital. Originally built in 1847 to treat the areas large German-speaking community. It originally consisted of 3 red brick Victoria terraced houses but gradually expanded over the years before finally closing in 1987 and being converted to affordable housing.
