We know how scary it can be to buy a property, whether you’re buying your first property in Millwall or moving to a larger place, there’s no substitute for the peace of mind provided by a detailed report prepared by one of our experienced Chartered Surveyors. We offer RICS Level 2 & 3 surveys and are waiting to discuss which is best for you.
After moving in to your new Millwall property, we hope you’ll come back to us whether you require advice on extending a lease, are planning to extend and require assistance with party wall matters or need an experienced surveyor to manage the project for you.
All of our senior surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors. In addition, the practice is regulated by the RICS so you can be sure that we adhere to the highest standards within the industry.
One of our Associate Directors, Matthew Price, was instructed as the adjoining owner’s surveyor on a project in Millwall where notice had been served by an owner who was intending to undertake works pursuant to the Party Wall Act relating to a rear extension.
The adjoining owner was concerned specifically with how the construction works being conducted in close proximity to their existing conservatory may damage or otherwise affect their property.
Matthew agreed the way in which the adjoining owner’s extension would be protected during the works with the building owner’s surveyor. This included specification of how the foundations in close proximity were to be dug and cast to minimise the risk of ground movement, and by extension, the risk of cracking and other damage occurring to the adjoining owner’s property. Where it is necessary to dig a foundations trench alongside the wall of an existing structure, a typical safeguard is to excavate sequential i.e. dig a metre, leave a metre etc. (referred to as ‘hit and miss’ casting).

Most people think of the football club when you mention Millwall but their current stadium, the (new) Den, is actually in Bermondsey and they’ve not played on the Isle of Dogs since 1910.
The district known as Millwall is located on the western and southern side of the Isle of Dogs. There was significant development in the area through the 1980s when it became part of a development zone. Millwall is bordered to the north by Canary Wharf and so has fantastic transport links with both DLR and London Underground stations within walking distance.
The oldest pub in the area is the Ferry House on Ferry Street which dates back to 1722. As it was the point where the ferry to Greenwich could be boarded back as far as the 1300s it’s possible that there was a drinking establishment of sorts on the site even earlier than the Ferry House.
The Space is a theatre located in a former Presbyterian church on Westferry Road. As well as live performances, the venue puts on workshops and provides performance opportunities through their participatory theatre project.
