Simple Guide to Using Other Specialists: Party Wall Surveyor
Party Wall Surveyor
When working on a property which is semi-detached or the work is close to a boundary or an adjoining property, you will probably need a party wall agreement between you and your neighbour. In most cases, this is a simple process completed by an exchange of letters agreeing to the work.
Complex projects often require the services of a party wall surveyor to oversee this process. They are normally a member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors who have their own code of conduct and are required to have the correct insurance, training, and expertise to undertake this role.
