If you’re thinking about extending your Shoreditch property, there may be party wall matters to consider. We can advise on the service of notices, preparing schedules of condition and acting as appointed surveyor if a dispute arises. We also regularly act for adjoining owners in Shoreditch, ensuring that their properties are adequately protected during the works.
Works falling within the scope of the Party Wall Act not only include those that directly affect a party wall, such as cutting in beams or removing chimney breasts, but also new walls constructed either up to or astride the boundary and adjacent excavation. Many owners are surprised to find out that excavating foundations on their own land, set back from the boundary, may fall within the scope of the Act if they are within 3.00m metres of a shared or adjoining structure.
Our team of specialist party wall surveys are on hand to guide you through the process.
Our team of surveyors have assisted numerous clients over the years with the purchase of their Shoreditch property both by providing valuation advice and pre-purchase surveys. Residents regularly come back to us when it’s time to refurbish or extend their property so that we can advise on neighbourly matters or just manage the whole project.
This is where we’ll be providing details of some of the Shoreditch based projects we’ve worked on recently, the challenges that we’ve faced and the feedback we’ve received from our clients so please check back over the next few weeks to read more.
In the meantime, we’d recommend that you check out the large collection of posts that have been added to our blog since 2009 including a few detailed case studies.
