Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors were instructed to act as Party Wall Surveyor for the proposed retrofit in a two storey terraced house in Beckton. The works entailed the introduction of a mezzanine floor in the roof space, requiring supporting beams from the party walls and raising of the roof, a party structure between the adjoined properties.
We prepared the Notice and served it on the Adjoining Owner, a Housing Association who gave consent that the named surveyor at Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors act as the Agreed Surveyor. In this role the Agreed Surveyor acts impartially for both the Building Owner and Adjoining Owner to conclude a Party Wall Award that is fair to both parties.
Inspections were carried out, a schedule of condition produced and subsequently the Party Wall Award was published.
