The above fees are valid for acting as either Building Owners Surveyor or Agreed Surveyor. If additional involvement or attendance is required, for instance if damage occurs to the adjoining property and it is necessary to agree and supervise remedial work; then an hourly rate will apply.
What we will do.
JS Building Consultancy will, on your behalf, prepare and issue Party Wall Notices as required under section 1, 3 or 6 of the Party Wall etc Act. The notices will be accompanied by an explanatory letter to your neighbour.
You will be asked to provide all necessary information to enable the correct notice to be given to your neighbours affected by the work, and you may be required to include a drawing detailing the works to be undertaken.
You will need to send JS Building Consultancy a signed letter of authority to act; you will be sent a copy of the letter for you to sign.
The notices will be prepared and signed by a professional and experienced Surveyor and sent to your neighbour. You will be provided with copies of notices etc. that are sent to your neighbour.
If 14 days after the date of notice your neighbour has not responded in writing signifying their consent to the work taking place, then a dispute is deemed to have arisen and a Party Wall Agreement or Award will be required under the provisions of the Act. Your neighbours will need to appoint a surveyor.
At that stage JS Building consultancy shall proceed as your surveyor to prepare the Agreement and liaise with your neighbour’s surveyor. It is usual for the owners of the property where the work is being carried out to be responsible for their neighbour’s costs.
Your Party Wall Award will be prepared and signed by a professional and experienced Surveyor. The Party Wall Award is also referred to as the Party Wall Agreement within this offer.
If your neighbour consents to the work our fee for preparing and serving notice only will be £100.
What you need to do.
Fill in and sign then send back the forms that will be sent to you.
Let us know if you hear from your neighbours within 14 days of the notices being issued.
