Peter Barry Surveyors is a multidisciplinary practice with a focus on residential property. We offer a range of valuation and surveying services in Homerton including Building Surveys, Specific Defect Reports and Leasehold Valuations.
Party wall procedures are a particular area of expertise. We have a large team with vast experience in acting for either owner or as the ‘agreed surveyor’. Having an experienced surveyor involved from the outset can make all the difference and may even help to avoid a dispute altogether. Whether you’re preparing to extend your Homerton property or have just received a notice from your neighbour, contact us for some free and friendly advice.
All of our surveyors, assistants and support staff are trained to the highest standards for the benefit of our Homerton clients. In addition to their professional qualifications, everyone goes through an intensive in-house training programme designed around the work of each department they work within.
Peter Barry Surveyors received an instruction from an owner who wanted to construct a basement under their three storey, mid terraced, Victorian house in the E9 Homerton Area. The case was allocated to William Weaver who, being one of the senior surveyors, has extensive experience of dealing with party wall matters relating to basements.
William held a video meeting with the architect and the building owner to discuss all aspects of the planning permission, the drawings, the engineering solutions and the process. The engineering solution was unconventional and the client needed guidance on the implications of the planning permission that had been obtained.
William served the necessary notices and both neighbours appointed separate surveyors. The surveyors in turn requested an advising engineer. Matters are proceeding smoothly and efficiently. William stressed the importance of that early meeting with the designer and the owner to clarify all the issues and avoid any unwelcome surprises.

Homerton High Street is located to the west of Hackney Marshes with Central Hackney to the west.
One of the most interesting buildings in the area is Sutton House at 2 & 4 Homerton High Street which is one of London’s last surviving Tudor manor houses. Built in about 1530, the Grade II* building has been used as a Victorian school, a church institute in World War One and a punk squat in the 1980s (some of the graffiti still remains). These days the building is managed by the National Trust
Chats Palace on Brooksby’s Walk, named after a lost cinema on nearby Chatsworth Road, is an interesting local entertainment venue. When the area’s Library moved to a new building in the 1970s the original Grade II premises was converted to an arts centre for the local community. The Christmas shows are a highlight of the year, bringing together local residents of all ages as both devisors and performers.
