About Us 

The best advice for appointing a Party Wall Surveyor is to choose your surveyor very carefully. There are many Party Wall Surveyors covering Manchester and Cheshire so you should do some basic research before deciding on who you will eventually appoint in the event of a party wall dispute.  
 
Many people do not know that once you appoint a surveyor under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, you cannot rescind that surveyors appointment no matter what reason you have to do so. In other words you have to continue with the same surveyor until the dispute is resolved. This is simply to prevent owners holding up the party wall process. 
 
If you are the building owner, your surveyor should be able to provide you with a fixed cost if your work is straight forward or at least give you an indication of costs. We can provide fixed costs for the work if you are the building owner or if we are acting as agreed surveyor. 
 
You also want your Party Wall Surveyor to be contactable when you need to contact him or her. Many people complain of the lack of personal service or communication when dealing with a large company of surveyors. All these points should factor in your final decision. 
 
Richard was able to explain complex issues in clear and understandable terms. He was very professional and responsive and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
