Party Wall and Neighbourly Matters

The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 affects most new developments, as well as refurbishments and redevelopments of existing properties. The Act also deals with the excavation of neighbouring buildings.

Our experience and expertise will support you through the necessary legal framework, which includes identifying neighbours and assessing notices. We proactively begin negotiations with neighbours and their surveyors to create the Awards needed before works proceed.

Trident will also help you with other neighbourly issues such as licences for scaffolding, crane oversail and Rights of Light. We also have experience in representing your interests if you receive such notices served by neighbours.

Although this service is mostly sought in London, we have surveyors across the country able to support you in your Party Wall matters.
