“To fulfil my membership application, I attended an assessment interview at the Faculty’s office in London. The panel of 3 Party Wall Professionals tested my knowledge and understanding of everything relating to the Party Wall etc. Act 1996.

They also posed questions about different scenarios and how as a Party Wall Surveyor, I would deal with each one.”

“Works falling within the scope of The Act include; work on an existing wall, ceiling or floor structure shared with another property, building on the boundary and/or excavating near a neighbouring building or structure.”

“This is a great accolade and we are very proud of Alex for his achievement in being accepted as a member of The Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors. We receive a lot of party wall enquiries and this adds to our professional competence backing up our strengths in this area.

All too often, property owners are just not aware of the consequences of their actions when it comes to the effect their development has on a neighbour’s rights, under the Act. Therefore, it is our aim to raise awareness in order to save time, money and heart-ache between neighbours.”
