  • Q&A Session

Alex Frame is currently the president of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors and is the remaining founder member from the four that set up the Faculty. He has his own surveying and design practice but spends much time teaching at seminars on party wall and boundary matters as well as writing books having recently vastly updated the Misunderstandings & Guidance book, produced the long awaited second edition of the Third Surveyor book and new books on BoundariesA History of Party Walls  and Walls of History. He has also been instrumental in writing the seventh edition of the RICS guidance on party wall matters, and is also a member of RICS party wall and boundary panel. Conscious that mediation offers distinct advantages over litigation, Alex Frame joined forces with HH Edward Bailey and the P&T to set up the Party Wall Mediation Scheme LLP for the benefit of building and adjoining owners utilising the specialist skills and knowledge of party wall surveyors and lawyers practising in this field. He has been undertaking party wall matters for very many years and is well experienced as a third surveyor.

Vicky Dewey Bruce – I am a Fellow of the FPWS, Associate of the RICS and Member of the Party Wall Mediation Scheme.
I have specialised in neighbouring issues for over 20 years. I have historically worked for Housing Associations and then in the private sector before setting up my own business in 2008. My experiences gained by working in the public sector have given me an insight into many different lifestyles and how different scenarios affect us all in different ways. Our properties are very personal to us and so it is important to ensure that each case and individual is given full consideration. I hope to improve the way in which party wall and other neighbouring issues are handled so as to make the process more effective and simplistic for all. I use my qualification in mediation to assist in the negation of disputes and manage expectations. I run regular forums for the Faculty for which my aim is to encourage life long learning as well as offering original and less publicised topics.
Stephen Cornish – A well known and respected Chartered Surveyor throughout Middlesex, North West London and Central London, Steve (Cornish) and Stephen (Woodward) have worked together since the late 1980’s.  Steve is to be found in either the Mayfair or Rickmansworth office well before the sun, and most surveyors, are out of bed and has an insatiable passion for architecture and its history.  He has a Doctorate in building history, a subject that finds him lecturing at Birkbeck College University of London. Steve is a Fellow of the RICS, a Fellow and Director of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors and member of the Pyramus and Thisbe Society for party wall surveyors.  He lectures on Party Wall maters and is a widely consulted  “Third Surveyor”  settling Party Wall disputes between Party Wall surveyors.
