The Party Wall Surveying Team at ABBEY has Graham Holden as its primary party wall surveyor, and he is fully supported by a skilled and capable team of Building Surveyors and Administrators to ensure that the specific requirements of the Party Wall etc Act 1996 are followed.

Graham is an active and qualified member of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors and listed in the Pyramus and Thisbe National Register of Party Wall Surveyors for England and Wales. The Party Wall etc Act 1996 is a small but complex piece of legislation that has applied across England and Wales since July 1997, but it is important to recognise that the Act can apply on the simplest of Kitchen extensions and right up to the construction of multi-million city centre developments. The Party Wall Surveying Team at ABBEY can:

  • Provide free advice on notification requirements
  • Resolve compensation claims
  • Prepare and serve Notices on behalf of the Building Owner
  • Carry out Schedules of Condition
  • Receive and action Notices on behalf of the Adjoining Owner
  • Determine boundary disputes
  • Provide advice on access rights through Common Law
  • Act as the Building Owner’s appointed Surveyor
  • Resolve access rights relating to notified works
  • Act as the Adjoining Owner’s appointed Surveyor
  • Advise on the use of the Access to Neighbouring Land Act 1992
  • Determine matters as the Agreed Surveyor
