The owner of a basement flat within a row of four storey Victorian townhouses in the centre of Notting Hill Gate contacted Peter Barry Surveyors for assistance in relation to the preparation and service of party wall notices. One of our Assistant Surveyors, Callum Escott, ran day-to-day matters on the file.
As the works taking place fell within the scope of Section 6 of the Act in respect of the excavation and casting of piled foundations, coupled with the fact that the neighbouring premises had been divided into several flats, multiple adjoining owners had to be notified.
Upon receipt of the notices, a number of adjoining owners opted to appoint their own surveyor. Callum worked with the numerous parties extensively to ensure that the works commenced on time, whilst also keeping the associated fees to a minimum by anticipating the issues that would come up.
Upon conclusion of the party wall awards, the building owner expressed his satisfaction with Callum’s input online stating that he “could not have better things to say”.
