Party Wall Services

The Party Wall Act 1996 came into force as a piece of government legislation that places rights and duties on anyone who is considering building works to their property. Works can typically include: extensions, alterations, conversions and other types of works, along or close to the boundaries, such as excavations, that does or has the potential to affect the structure of neighbouring properties.

Whether acting as a sole agreed surveyor or liaising with third party surveyors to reach a mutually agreeable outcome for both parties, we guarantee a truly professional and unbiased service to guide you through the legal obligations of the Party Wall Act 1996.

All I can say is a big thank you! This has been a fantastic collaboration by all concerned. It's all happened quickly as well. We first visited the Hospice in July when, ironically, it was raining during the long dry spell we had. I wasn't sure at that time whether the building could be retained or would need complete renewal, and the Hospice advised that they'd been trying to fix it for many years. Now it's done and I know the Hospice is very grateful. You have made my life here easier as well, by acting in such a professional manner. - Joe Cartwright BSc MRICS (Senior Projects Coordinator for CRASH)

Structural Survey’s Ltd were really quick to respond to our enquiry, and were able to provide advise and guidance up front about the type of survey we needed. They fitted us in within a few days and we had the report less than 24 hours later. The report is full of photos which helps us visualise what’s being talked about. Happy to recommend.

Andrew Russell contacted me within 5 minutes of me emailing him and our survey was arranged and completed, with report issued within 6 days of first contact. The survey was thorough and detailed. We paid much less than we had thought and it was well worth the money. Andrew was professional and efficient in all emails and phone conversations. We would highly recommend his services and we intend to use him again.

The whole service I received was great from start to finish. My appointment was made really quickly and I got plenty of help and advice regarding the type of survey that I would need. I also received my survey within just a few hours of the appointment itself. It was very detailed and picked up on some issues which allowed me to go into my purchase with all the information I needed. The report was very thorough and easy to read. I would definitely recommend Structural Surveys and will keep you in mind if I need similar surveys in the future.

We were delighted with the helpful response when we needed a structural survey on our holiday house in Anglesey. Andrew met us at the house explained what he would do and spent over two hours doing a thorough inspection of the house, crawling through roof spaces and taking measurements and photos.He chatted to us both afterwards and reassured us that the property was sound. The report was with us the next morning. Very many thanks.
