Do I need a party wall surveyor?

Hourican Associates Limited operate a specialist division of Party Wall Surveyors who undertake appointments on behalf of developers (Building Owners) or neighbouring owners (Adjoining Owners) within the residential and commercial environment.

Are you a Client or Client’s representative? Will your proposals require the following types of work:

  1. Forming a building foundation within 3 metres and to a lower level of a neighbour’s property?
  2. Constructing a building or a boundary wall up to or astride the boundary line?
  3. Raising, lowering, cutting into or underpinning a boundary wall or party wall?

If the answer is ‘yes’ to one or all of the above works, there is a statutory requirement that you follow a strict process set out in the Party Wall etc. Act, 1996. We recommend that you contact Hourican Associates Ltd for further advice.
