We are pleased to announce that the Faculty have organised a three part Sui Generis series which will be delivered to you via the videoconferencing app Zoom. Part Two will be delivered on Wednesday 25th November 2020 at 9.30 a.m. until 5.00 p.m. by Stuart Frame, Barrister at Tanfield Chambers. 

This one-day course should not be missed by practising party wall surveyors, dealing as it does with the thorny issue of what surveyors can or can’t do in circumstances where unauthorised notifiable works have been conducted, as well as providing an overview of the most important principles established in party wall case law. 

The second of Stuart’s three Sui Generis webinars deals with in the morning session with the drafting of Awards, and provides a critical analysis of common erroneous clauses which nevertheless find their way into awards as part of industry common practice. The session concludes with a further analysis of the Faculty’s new draft standard Award produced in September 2020.

The two afternoon sessions will examine all the relevant case law and principles under the 1996 Act in relation to the various procedures under section 10 of the Act and the extent of the surveyors’ jurisdiction when operating those procedures, with particular emphasis on those cases where the courts have declared awards invalidly made. This includes an examination of issues in relation to appointments and selections, ex parte awards, service of documents, and appeals of awards.
