When it comes time to extend or alter a business premises or family home you need to be sure that you are doing everything by the book.

David Smith Associates provides party wall surveying services for both commercial and residential clients. Our main offices are based in Northampton, Cirencester, London & Birmingham and our surveyors can operate throughout the country.
Understanding the Party Wall Act
The Party Wall Etc Act 1996 brought in the requirements for building owners to serve appropriate notices on their adjoining owners. This is in relation to works carried out to party walls and proposed extensions and alterations. This therefore may require notices to be served under any number of sections within the Act for party wall matters and under Section 6 for foundation work and excavations where you are within 3m or 6m of an adjoining owner's structure.
