From offices in Greenwich SE10, our team of experienced Chartered Surveyors provide a range of residential surveying services including property surveys, valuations and party wall advice.
If you’re planning improvement works on a property which will fall within the scope of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, we can help with the advice you need to manage the process and act on your behalf if necessary. We also have experience in acting for adjoining owners or as the agreed surveyor.
If you are in the process of buying a home, whether your property search centres on inner-London Lambeth or Bexley’s suburbia, Peter Barry’s surveyors are on hand to give you peace of mind and the confidence to proceed with your most important purchase. We can prepare both RICS Level 2 (Homebuyer) Reports and Level 3 Building Surveys and are waiting for your call to discuss which will best suit your needs.
Other residential surveying services include project management, snagging lists and valuations for both lease extensions and freehold enfranchisement.
We are vastly experienced in party wall matters whether acting for the building owner, adjoining owner or as agreed surveyor. Disputes are resolved by the preparation of a party wall award; a legally binding document that sets out the rights and responsibilities of the respective owners in relation to the proposed works.
The process starts with the party who proposes to undertake the works formally notifying the owners of any affected neighbouring properties. If the adjoining owner is relaxed about the proposals, they may decide to consent to the notice. In that scenario, we would still recommend that a detailed schedule of condition is prepared covering the adjacent parts of the adjoining owner’s property so that any damage reported can be quickly identified and made good.
If a notice is not consented to, a dispute arises and both parties must appoint a surveyor although they can concur in the appointment of a single agreed surveyor. The surveyor or surveyors prepare a party wall award which authorises the works but ensures that the adjoining owner’s property is protected and the occupants do not suffer unnecessary inconvenience.
Our team of Chartered Surveyors have many years’ experience of inspecting properties. Whatever the style or type of property you’re buying you’ll feel more confident armed with one of our survey reports.
Whether you’re thinking of extending your lease or enfranchising the freehold of your building we are at hand to offer the advice you require. We have the necessary experience to accurately value properties and enter in to negotiations on your behalf.
Our experienced team of party wall surveyors are on hand to assist whether you’re planning additions or alterations to your property that fall within the scope of The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 or you’ve received a notice informing you of a neighbour’s proposed works.
