Party Walls Services

How can Bellrock help?

We act for the building owners proposing to undertake work near a party wall. Bellrock assess legal and technical requirements of developer’s proposals and identifies relevant parts of the Party Wall Act. We then assess the extent of party walls impacted by proposals. Obtaining formal appointment under the Act, we Identify adjoining owners and serve relevant notices in a timely way.

Once we have identified the adjoining owners, we undertake schedules of condition of their property, produce and agree party wall awards with their surveyor and act for the adjoining owner to protect their party wall interests. Bellrock can also appoint third party surveyors under the Act, as well as monitor the construction work and agree additional awards as necessary. We check the schedule of condition on completion, receive any notices and respond accordingly. On occasion, we also agree any financial matters under the Act.
