Agreed Surveyor on Unstable Party Wall - Walthamstow

A party fence wall between two owners had become unstable due to the construction and lack of foundations. The Building Owner had decided to take the wall down and re-construct. However, a detailed design and agreement on the reinstatement works was required beforehand. Following detailed investigations by East Thames, an engineer and Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors, a proposed scheme for repair was agreed.

This involved taking down a section of the party fence wall and rebuilding to the original design, including new foundations and reinforced piers. A large section of the existing boundary wall was retained, with the introduction of reinforced piers on pad foundations.

The named surveyor at Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors acted on behalf of East Thames to serve Notice on the Adjoining Owner and, following agreement, became the Agreed Surveyor. An inspection resulted in a schedule of condition attached to the published Award, which was checked and signed off on completion of the works.
