The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 provides owners of buildings with certain rights and obligations to other owners in relation to party walls and other structures defined under the Act.
Building Owners are legally required to serve formal Notice prior to commencing works so as to afford the Adjoining Owner the opportunity to consider the proposals and to decide whether to obtain professional representation.
Philip Carey has acted for Building Owners and Adjoining Owners or as Agreed Surveyor, in various aspects of residential and commercial party wall matters, including:
P L Carey & Co undertakes full building surveys (formerly known as ‘structural’ surveys) providing a detailed report for the purpose of advising on property condition, usually a requirement prior to purchase. A sample report format can be provided, if required.
The building survey will not include for a valuation but can offer budget cost advice in respect of repairs. Typically, the building survey will include:
Contract administration will include for advising on contractor selection, scheme tendering to contractors and administering the contract for full duration through to final certification.
Contract administration is often combined with scheme design, preparation of scheme drawings, dealing with statutory permissions, and preparation of a works specification, all services offered by P L Carey & Co.
Throughout his career, Philip has successfully undertaken the design and contract administration on many schemes both for residential and commercial clients. He has also successfully undertaken employer’s agent role on various new build and refurbishment schemes.
