Our party wall surveyors aid amicable and accurate communications between adjoining neighbours when construction works commence or are in question. In these situations, it is essential that the information that you are given is correct – our faculty ensures that you only deal with the very best surveyors available in the industry. .
In 1997 the Government introduced party wall legislation across the whole of England & Wales in the form of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. It was recognised by a number of experienced practitioners that the shortage of surveyors available to administer this legislation had to be addressed and the Faculty was born out of this national need for education and support for surveyors but also to enhance awareness and provide advice and guidance to the general public.
