FACULTY of PARTY WALL SURVEYORS

Providing Training & Regulation

01424 883300 - enq@fpws.org.uk

Born from a need for Support & Education

Following the successful launch of the Kent Faculty Forum, Ken Power, Fellow of the Faculty, is happy to announce details of the next Kent Forum meeting, which is being held on Thursday 26 March 2015 at Thistle Brands Hatch, Dartford, Brands Hatch, Kent DA3 8PA (J3 of the M25).

It is a very interesting venue with its rich motorsport background and history.

The meeting will be held in the Falcon suite and a buffet and soft drinks will be provided between 6.00 and 6.30 p.m.

The Race Bar will be open for anyone who wants to purchase alcoholic drinks.

Please arrive by 6.00 p.m. for a 6.30 p.m. start and the event will finish by 8.30 p.m.

Our expert panel includes:

Nicholas Isaac – Barrister, Tanfield Chambers, London
Gerry Poole -Director, Poole & Company, Chartered Building Surveyors
Paul Wallace – Partner, Bellamy Wallace Partnership, Consulting Engineers

The panel will take a “close and perhaps legally forensic look” at the RICS Draft Award template in the 6th Edition Guidance note and discuss suggested improvements with a view to making your Awards more robust, followed by a presentation on the capacity of party walls and the practical issues flowing therefrom.

Time permitting, the panel also intends to discuss:

  • Getting Notices right for leaseholders and freeholders, especially when they are the same people!
  • Security for expenses for leaseholders and freeholders
  • Trespass, unathorised enclosures and Party Stucture Notices

It will, once again, be a very full and interesting schedule but if there are any burning questions that you want answered please let Ken know as soon as possible and he will try and include them in the schedule.

The room is available until 9.00 p.m. and I am sure the panel won’t mind stopping off at the bar so there will be time afterwards to discuss any other issues.

The forum event is open to members and anyone with an interest in party wall matters, so please bring a colleague along to take part in what promises to be a very interesting evening.  You can obtain a valuable CPD certificate at the same time!

Please let us know if you wish to attend at your earliest convenience in order that we are aware of numbers for catering purposes.
