Party Wall Awards
Where neighbours don’t agree with the works proposed, a ‘dispute’ has arisen and there is a mechanism for dealing with this under the Act. Both parties need to appoint a surveyor, who will ideally be a qualified chartered surveyor with the RICS. They can appoint the same surveyor, who is bound by an ethical code of conduct to be impartial and fair. The surveyor will agree a route forward which will be codified into a Party Wall Award.
We can also help property purchasers, as an accurate valuation can save you thousands of pounds of unnecessary expenditure by helping you to avoid an over-valued property and negotiate a better deal. Our registered valuer in Yeovil is able to discuss the property value with you at any time, advising on related aspects like resale value, investment potential and ‘synergistic’ value.
