Neighbourly Matters & Party Walls

Experts in dealing with
Neighbourly Matters & Party Walls


Many projects, particularly those located in towns and cities, will have an impact on properties nearby. Our in-house team of specialist surveyors are experienced at negotiating construction consents, such as party wall agreements, while ensuring that  neighbours and interested parties have their rights protected during a project. 

Our Services

Managing neighbourly relationships around construction

It is essential to consider a project’s impact on surrounding properties in order to manage risks when seeking planning permission and throughout the construction stage. Our team of specialist Neighbourly Matters surveyors provide consultancy advice from as early as pre-acquisition, through planning and as well as during on-site delivery. We highlight all potential issues and provide practical and commercial solutions towards maximising development potential, while ensuring access for construction as well as statutory compliance.

We advise both building owners and adjoining owners on their rights as well as acting as third party surveyors providing litigation support to those who need it.
