We’ve been resolving party wall disputes in Mile End 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 Mile End 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.
One of our Associate Directors, Matthew Price, acted as the adjoining owner’s surveyor on a recent project in Mile End where the building owner had served their own notices under sections 2 and 6 of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. The proposals included works directly affecting the party wall including the removal of chimney breasts and the insertion of steel beams as well as the excavation of foundations relating to a rear extension.
The project was time sensitive as the adjoining owner due to leave the country shortly after receiving the notice. Matthew was able to accommodate by visiting the adjoining owner’s property within a few days of being appointed and managed to agree an Award authorising the works with the neighbour’s surveyor quickly thereafter. This gave the adjoining owner the reassurance of having the process handled competently whilst also accommodating the building owner’s tight timeline.

Mile End is a typical inner city London area with a high density of residential development. However, as it is also home to Queen Mary University it has a mix of residents, with East End locals mixing with medical students. The Green Bridge is a well-known local landmark that features greenery and water features. There are a number of historical buildings in the area and a good mix of housing options, thanks to the student population, as well as University staff looking for good, local accommodation.
Transport-wise, Mile End is served by an underground station of the same name, which is on the Central, Metropolitan & City and District lines, offering plenty of choice for travel into central London. Bow Road (underground) and Bow Church (DLR) stations are also close by.
