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 Wanstead 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 a dispute 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 Wanstead 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).
Nestled in one of the quieter corners of Wanstead, close to the golf course, there are many individual and distinctive 20th century houses which are now reaching the age where they’re in need of some refurbishment or renovation.
Our client wished to construct an extension to the rear and side of their property, meaning that the works were notifiable to the owners of both neighbouring houses under section 6 of the Party Wall Act. Notices of Adjacent Excavation were duly served. Section 6 covers excavation within up to 6 metres of a structure owned by another party where the proposed foundations will be deeper than those to the adjoining structure. The criteria is the same even if the properties are detached, as in this case.
Following one neighbour consenting and one dissenting, schedules of condition were prepared in mid-summer and the works are currently underway.

The George Pub on the High Street in Wanstead is the starting point for those looking to solve the mystery of the cherry pie. To the side of the pub is a plaque ‘In Memory of Ye Cherry Pey …’ which is either a warning to would be thieves or commemorates a feast which included a huge pie depending upon which local legend you prefer. These days the venue is a rather more prosaic Wetherspoons.
