Party wall matters

With extensive knowledge of the Party Wall Act 1996, Great West Design are specialists in all areas of party wall matters and are members of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors. Any building owner carrying out works to adjoining walls which are covered by the Act must give their neighbouring owners notice of their intentions as required by the Act.

Adjoining owners can agree or disagree with what is proposed. Where they disagree, the Act provides a mechanism for resolving disputes.

Great West Design can act for both building and adjoining owners in respect of party wall matters. Our party wall specialists are fully versed in the procedures of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 and how to resolve any disputes quickly and smoothly, with over 40 years combined experience.
