Under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, every ‘adjoining owner’ is subject to the provisions of the Act. In a typical domestic scenario, this is usually limited to one other party but, in larger commercial developments in built up areas like Durham, the Party Wall Act can affect multiple adjoining owners.
In such cases, the process of serving notices, mediating disputes and issuing Party Wall awards can be complex, lengthy and expensive. At Durham Surveyors, we offer a team of surveyors to work on your project to ensure the demands of the Party Wall Act are dealt with thoroughly and efficiently.
