DJD Construction Consultants

Party Wall Services

DJD Construction Consultants offer Party Wall advice and surveying services, supporting clients where they have responsibilities under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, or are effected by work undertaken by others.

The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 applies in England and Wales and provides a framework for preventing and resolving disputes in relation to party walls, boundary walls and excavations near neighbouring buildings.

If you are carrying out works described in the Act you must inform adjoining owners by serving a Party Wall Notice. In the event of a disupute with adjoining owners you will be required to agree the appointment of a Party Wall Surveyor.

DJD Construction Consultants can advise you as to your rights and responsibilities under the Act, either as an owner wishing to carry out works or as an adjoining owner who has received a Party Wall Notice. We can also act as a Party Wall Surveyor in drawing up an Award, an agreement between adjoining owners.

David Davis and Kevin Davis are members of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors. As such the Practice has access to the advice and resources of the Faculty, enabling the team to give you the best advice.

We also provide advice to adjoining owners who have not been served with a Party Wall Notice but have become aware of works affecting a Party Wall they own.

More information on the Act is available from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, access their guidance here.

Contact us to see whether you need to serve a Party Wall Notice, agree an Award, or are being effected by Party Wall works.
