Are you looking to appoint an impartial Party Wall Surveyor as you progress your Stamford Hill building project? Is one Party Wall Surveyor enough or do you require more?
The answer is a bit complicated and we advise you to give us a ring to talk you through it. We are happy to have a free initial conversation with you whatever stage of the Party Wall Act process you are at.
But briefly if your Stamford Hill neighbour has not provided written consent within 14 days of serving the Party Wall Notice you will need to appoint a Party Wall Surveyor to draft a Party Wall Agreement.
A Party Wall Surveyor doesn’t work on your behalf or on the behalf of your Stamford Hill neighbour. Instead they work on behalf of the Party Wall Act and therefore provide impartial input.
It therefore makes sense and is cost effective to get the agreement of your Stamford Hill neighbour to choose one Party Wall Surveyor to draft the Party Wall Agreement.
Sometimes where perhaps there is existing mistrust between Stamford Hill neighbours or simple disagreement it is not possible to agree on a Party Wall Surveyor. In this case the Party Wall Act allows for both property owners to appoint two different Party Wall Surveyors to draft the Party Wall Agreement. These two Party Wall Surveyors can then appoint a Third Party Wall Surveyor to be called upon to resolve further disputes.
