Barry Stott-Brookes is a party wall surveyor with over four years’ experience in the London and South East property and construction sector. We undertake residential party wall work in London and the South East. The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 is in place to provide clear guidance and restrictions on what works can be carried out to a party wall/structure, and how. As adjoining neighbours have an interest in the party wall or structure between their properties, it is required that notice be provided for most works to that wall/structure. The role of the party wall surveyor is to mediate how these works are carried out.
We work for:
- Building owners wishing to carry out work to or near a party wall
- Adjoining owners who have been notified of the proposed neighbouring work
We will clearly explain how the Party Wall Act may be relevant to you, what steps need to be taken and how the Act serves to protect your interests. Our knowledge of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, combined with our friendly, professional and efficient service, allows us to act impartially to achieve an amicable agreement between you and your neighbours.
During the process, we keep you informed of progress through the negotiations, and seek to conclude matters in a timely manner. With our bespoke service and competitive quotes, we can compete directly with national organisations.
Initial notice: £60 each plus VAT
Building owner surveyor: £495 each agreement plus VAT
Agreed surveyor for building owner and adjoining owners: £695 each person plus VAT
Appointed surveyor: £150 per hour plus VAT
Approximately 3 years ago we purchased a rather run down bungalow on a good site with excellent views over the neighbouring countryside. We had a reasonable but limited budget for the improvement works we wanted to undertake. We also had a rough idea of what we wanted to achieve but were unsure of what steps we needed to take to get there. We selected Barry of Architects Atelier to help us realise our plans because he was approachable, reasonable and professional. He explained the process of planning, tendering and project managing the build. He was quite simply brilliant and we would have no hesitation in recommending his services to family, friends or the public at large.
