Alan Riley Associates Ltd is a firm of specialist party wall surveyors in the Wimbledon area. We provide expert party wall services to homeowners and small businesses throughout South West London, West London and Surrey.
Established in 1996, we are regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, carry full professional indemnity insurance and have a compliant complaints handling procedure, as required by the RICS.
At Alan Riley Associates we believe in providing an efficient and cost effective service either based on a per hour basis or as a fixed price service, depending on the scale and complexity of the works.
When work is carried out to party walls or close to a neighbouring property, the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 sets out the procedures to be adopted. The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 requires that notice of work involving the party wall is given to adjoining owners in writing. If the neighbouring property is divided into flats, notices must be served on the freeholders as well as leaseholders. If you are a building owner carrying out work to your property that falls within the scope of the Act, or if you are an adjoining owner where your neighbour is carrying out work to their property, Alan Riley Associates can provide you with timely, economical expert advice to guide you through the requirements of the Act.
By approaching neighbours in the correct way, difficult situations and delay can be avoided. We strongly recommend that you speak with your neighbours about your project. Alan Riley Associates has the experience to help you approach your neighbours to comply with the Act and deal with party wall matters in the most effective and economical way.
Thank you so much for all this information, very clear and helpful.
